Street Sweeping in Minneapolis

Spring comprehensive street sweeping will started Tuesday April 11, 2017

Each spring and fall, Public Works crews sweep every mile of the City's more than 1,100 miles of streets – curb to curb – to help keep our neighborhoods clean and livable and to protect our waterways. Each spring, crews sweep the nearly 400 miles of alleys as well. Leaves and other debris on the streets can clog storm drains and pollute our lakes and rivers.

Street sweeping usually takes about four weeks to complete. Thanks for your cooperation. 

Street sweeping schedule

Use the visual, interactive Street Sweeping Schedule Lookup map to see when your area is scheduled for street sweeping.  Street sweep application thumbnail image and link to lookup schedule applicationThe schedule is color-coded to enable you to easily identify when your street will be swept.

The schedule is updated frequently during the sweep to reflect the actual progress of street sweeping. The schedule shown here may change. The map may be updated, so please check back just prior to your scheduled day; or if you think your street was not swept as scheduled.

Note: The street sweeping schedule lookup only pertains to the comprehensive street sweeping program. A few other streets, such as parkways and downtown streets, may be swept on days not included in the lookup. ALWAYS watch for and obey No Parking Signs.

Keep informed - avoid being towed

Please take a moment to view the schedule, vehicles parked in violation of signs are subject to a ticket and tow.

Street sweeping is explained in English, Hmong, Somali and Spanish as part of the City’s  “Did you know...” series. These videos and others can be viewed at and on City cable channel 14.  Residents who have friends or neighbors who speak these languages are encouraged to share links to the videos.
