Chicago Street Cleaning Begins Today

FINALLY this winter is over… Chicago street sweeping starts today, so pay attention to street signs in order to keep your hard-earned cash.

After a brutal winter, Streets and Sanitation has launched an aggressive spring cleaning plan effective starting this week.

Crews will pick up litter and other objects along curb lanes while street sweeping trucks scour the main thoroughfares.

To ensure that the street is cleaned curb-to-curb, temporary parking restrictions are posted the day before the work is scheduled to begin on any street, a city news release said.

Some arterial streets have permanently posted signs that specify a once-per-week period when parking is prohibited for street sweeping.

To find out when your neighborhood is up for cleaning, check with your local ward sanitation office. Street sweeping requests can be made by calling or texting 3-1-1.

The WARE team is looking forward to the much-needed spring cleaning… now let’s work on these potholes.

MORAL OF THE STORY: PAY ATTENTION TO THE SIGNS!

The fine for parking in the way during a street sweeping is a minimum $50 ticket.
