Street Sweeping

The City performs periodic and frequent street sweeping throughout the residential and commercial areas of the City. Street sweeping removes the accumulations of trash, leaves and dirt within the gutters, and helps the city to maintain an aesthetically pleasing environment, as well as to comply with various Federal and State Water Quality requirements.

The Waterford Street Sweeper operates on a rotating schedule,  splitting the City of Waterford between the West Area and East Area; West of F Street on alternating Wednesdays and East of F Street on alternating Tuesday.  The Downtown Area is covered weekly.  To verify what area your residential or commercial property falls under please refer to the below map.


Rain and City-observed legal holidays are the two reasons for cancellation of scheduled street sweeping on both the residential and commercial routes. No “make-up days” are scheduled when street sweeping is canceled.

  1. Rain: Street sweeping is canceled on rainy days when runoff fills the gutters. Steady rain, not just showers, is usually needed to warrant cancellation.  The Public Works Director decides whether or not to cancel sweeping.
  2. Holidays: It is City policy to cancel street sweeping on the City’s legal holidays. There are ten City holidays a year (note that they aren’t exactly the same as Federal holidays).
