The Public Works Division makes it a goal to sweep the City’s 150 miles of roadways at least three times per year. It can take anywhere between five-eight weeks to sweep the entire City depending on weather conditions. In late spring/early summer, our Public Works Division partners with a contractor to complete a comprehensive street sweeping process. This process is part of the department’s overall efforts to keep Upper Arlington streets clean of sediment, leaves and other impediments to safe traffic and to keep debris out of the storm sewers, which lead directly to our waterways.
Spring 2019 Sweeping Underway from 7 am-4 pm
Street crews will post signs on key residential streets in each zone prior to its scheduled sweeping to advise those in the immediate area. Additionally, areas to be swept will be posted here and on social media as soon as the information becomes available, since sweeping is conducted on a rolling basis. Please move parked vehicles from the street between the hours of 7 am-4 pm to assist this process. Note that no ticketing or towing will occur. The sweeping will be conducted on weekdays only, with the exception of some school zones.
You can help us by…
- Moving parked cars, which will interfere with our sweeping.
- Sweepers cannot pick up brush, branches or yard waste. Please collect these items and put them out for Solid Waste Collection – Yard Waste or drop them off at the Ohio Mulch facility at 4120 Roberts Road.
