Street Sweeping Starts August 7

Street sweeping removes accumulated debris and pollutants such as sand, salt, metals, petroleum products and bacteria before they wash into streams, the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay. Neighborhoods in Arlington are swept four times a year in August, October, April and June.

Street sweeping hours are from approximately 7:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Be sure to move your car to a driveway, garage or non-sweeping street on your civic association’s scheduled street sweeping day. Arlington County will not issue parking fees for street sweeping purposes.

If you have any trees on your property that overhang to the curb, try to prune any low hanging limbs. Do not prune any limbs between the sidewalk and the curb as these may be publicly owned trees.
