To help protect our waterways from pollutants and to help maintain clean streets, the City of West Melbourne provides a street sweeping program. The program has removed an average of around 35 tons of material each month the City is swept. View a column chart depicting the tons of material removed (PDF).
Upon its inception in 2011, street sweeping was performed eight times a year in the months of January, February, April, May, July, August, October and November. In approving the City's fiscal year 2016 to 2017 budget, the City Council approved an increase in the frequency of street sweeping to once a month.
It takes two days for the City's contractor to sweep the streets in West Melbourne.
Street sweeping will generally be performed on the second week of the month barring equipment malfunction or inclement weather and Public Works crews will place signage in front of the neighborhood the day before a sweep so as to encourage citizens not to park along the street the next day.
