Street sweeping is conducted 10:30 PM to 7:00 AM, Sunday night through Friday morning to minimize the disruption to residents.
Sweeping is conducted on a ward-by-ward basis.
Sidewalks – abutters are requested to sweep sidewalks in anticipation of street sweepers. Citizens are also asked to clean sidewalks in front of vacant lots and public areas. Their cooperation would be most helpful since wind-borne litter carried from adjacent sidewalks and parking areas can nullify the results of a well-swept street. Street Sweeping is continuing on a nightly basis to address areas with continuing litter and debris issues.
If you have a location that needs to be swept, please contact DPW during normal business hours at (401) 680-7500 or visit #PVD311 to let us know how together we can keep Providence clean.
