The City Of LA Is Switching Street Sweeping To Every OTHER Week, Starting March 1
The city of L.A. is switching its weekly street sweeping of neighborhoods to every other week, starting March 1.
Why? The city attributes the change to the pandemic-related staff reductions.
The good news? If you live on a street with alternate-side parking rules to allow for street sweeping, this means less rushing out to move your car or getting slapped with annoying tickets.
The bad news? This will likely confuse a lot of people.
If you aren't good with calendars/alarms/reminders – or whatever you use to remind yourself to move the car every week – Streets L.A., which oversees street sweeping, now has an app and email reminder system for that.
It's called My311App. Just enter your email and street address and you should receive a notification 24 hours ahead of the sweeper.
You can also find a map of street sweeping dates and times at www.streetsla.lacity.org/sweeping and sign up for email notifications for move-your-car reminders.
Fun fact: According to Streets L.A., the City of Angels has more than 4,700 curb miles of streets to sweep.
There was a period of time at the beginning of the pandemic when street sweeping tickets were paused, due to the stay-at-home order, but the city began ticketing again for parking violations in October.
