City Debuts New Street Sweeping Schedules
After the past two weeks worth of controversial street sweeping changes the City of Chicago has just posted the new schedules for the street cleaning season.
It’s a little bit of work to figure it out, but worth the time to make sure the dates are on your calendar and your car doesn’t get ticketed.
STEP 1: Go to the Streets & Sanitation street sweeping webpage.
STEP 2: Locate your ward number.
There will be links to each ward’s schedule in the right column and a ward map in the right hand column.
STEP 3: Look at your ward’s map and locate your house or apartment.
There should be a section number on the colored map. That number corresponds to the section of the ward where you reside.
STEP 4: Review your ward’s schedule and locate the section number for your residence.
STEP 5: Make note of your neighborhood’s (section) sweeping schedule.
Double check the location description to make sure where you live falls within the boundaries given.
Take the time to mark it on the family calendar and put it in your phone’s calendar and/or scheduling application so you know when the street sweepers are coming.
Street cleaning tickets will suck a hard earned $50 out of your wallet, so be careful out there.
