Get Ready for the Street Sweepers in Duluth

Sweepers will give the city a spring scrubbing beginning next week.

Get Ready for the Street Sweepers in Duluth

Submitted by City of Duluth

In order to keep Duluth clean and beautiful, street sweeping will begin the week of May 26th.

The sweepers will start in zone 1 and will proceed in numerical order to complete all zones.

It is anticipated to take approximately three (3) weeks to sweep the entire City, so please help by not parking along the streets starting May 26th around 7:00 PM each night, sweeping will take place at night as well as during the day in areas where there is less traffic. 

The major reasons for street sweeping are:

*    To prevent annoyances arising from street dirt and dust.

*    To prevent the clogging of storm drain catch basins.

*    To enhance the appearance of the community.

*    To promote safety and to comply with the implementation of NPDES  
      regulations.
Look for Temporary No Parking Signs - The City will post temporary "No Parking" signs at least 24 hours before sweeping the streets. Please avoid parking or placing anything along the street edge for at least a week after the signs have been placed to ensure each street has been cleaned properly.

We would like to remind all residents to move vehicles and other obstacles off the streets so the sweepers may do their job removing debris, trash, and other pollutants that would otherwise end up in the storm drains, creeks, and rivers. The streets will be swept twice a year, in the spring and in the fall.
