Street Sweeping

City crews follow a set of 39 night sweeps over six districts and 102 day sweeps across seven districts. Check out the Street Sweeping City Map and enter your address to determine what map and district you are in. 

The City's street cleaning program removes dirt and debris from City streets to provide a healthy, safe, and attractive environment for Portland residents and visitors. Regular removal of leaves and debris by members of the public as well as City crews is necessary to prevent stormwater drains from clogging, which can result in street flooding. Street cleaning protects water quality and minimizes the burden on the sewer system from surface debris. 

The street sweeping program sweeps over 4,000 lane miles of curbed streets within the City of Portland, including residential streets and major arterial streets.

From mid-November to mid-December, removing leaves from our streets is critical because letting them stay on the street can clog storm drains, flood intersections and make streets slippery. Our Leaf Day Pickup program is about getting the leaves cleaned up in a way that makes a better, healthier and safer Portland.

Note:  Scheduled sweeping days and locations may vary due to availability of equipment, labor, and weather conditions.

Due to declining revenue and funding cuts, all curbed residential streets get swept only 1-2 times per year. All major arterial streets (high-traffic multi-lane streets) get swept 6-8 times per year. In addition to city street cleaning, residents play an important role in keeping streets clean and safe. We ask the public to clear leaves from storm drains near their property, especially during autumn.

If a storm drain is clogged, the public is welcome to call us at PBOT's 24/7 dispatch center: 503-823-1700 and we will send a crew to clear clogged drains. 

The street cleaning program also maintains street area landscapes and stairways and provides emergency response in winter storms. Street cleaning activities in the Central Business District include a special treatment process for the Transit Mall and Light Rail facilities and sweeping of pedestrian walkways and bike lanes.
