Street Sweeping

Street sweeping will start the week of April 13, 2022 weather permitting.  This year contracted sweeping will start  in the north west part of town and the town sweeper will start in the south east part of town.

Residents are asked to sweep their sidewalks and tree lawns (the grass strip that often exists between the walk and the roadway) into the street.  Please don't sweep the sand into a pile since that makes it more difficult for the sweepers to pick up the material.  Instead, sweep it into a row along the curb.   If you have any questions regarding the sweeping program please contact the Highway Division at (781) 942-9092 or the DPW Administration office at (781) 942-9077.

How do I get my street swept?

Street sweeping normally begins in late March/early April each year after the danger of snow has passed and the weather gets mild. With only two (2) sweepers and weather permitting it usually takes 8-10 weeks to complete the Town

What the Department of Public Works puts down for snow and ice control in the winter, the Department of Public Works has to pick up in the spring.

Sweeping is scheduled to begin by April 1st each year.

Residents are asked to sweep their sidewalks and tree lawns (the grass strip that often exists between the walk and the roadway) into the street. Please don't sweep the sand into a pile since that makes it more difficult for the sweepers to pick up the material. If you sweep it into a row along the curb it can be picked up by the sweeper.

Sweeping cannot pick up piles of leaves. Please do not sweep leaves into the street.

If you have any questions regarding the sweeping program please contact the Highway Division at 781-942-9092 or the D.P.W. Administration office at (781) 942- 9077.
