2017 Newport News Street Sweeping

Posted on March 21, 2017 at 8:36 AM by Communications Department

It’s officially spring and the City of Newport News is working to make the city beautiful. The Department of Public Works Street Maintenance Division is doing its portion of spring cleaning with the City’s annual street sweeping program. Between April and October, Street Maintenance sweeps city-owned streets. “Street Sweeping” signs are placed on major streets leading into neighborhoods the day prior to sweeping, and in the Southeast Community, permanent red and white “No Parking” signs are posted with the day that the side of the street is swept. To ensure the street is swept properly, be sure to remove vehicles from streets being swept by 9:00 a.m. on the designated days. Street parking can resume after 3:00 p.m. on street sweeping days.
Newport News is fully committed to environmental sustainability and is an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, an initiative to inspire and educate people to take action to improve and beautify their community. The recently launched Clean and Green Newport News campaign encourages residents to sign up and volunteer to pick up litter and beautify their neighborhoods. The Department of Public Works provides the necessary cleanup supplies, including bags for both litter and recyclable materials along with printed information to help identify what items can be recycled. With the assistance of Newport News residents and the Department of Public Works, the city is on track to be one of the cleanest in Hampton Roads.

Visit the Street Maintenance website for specific street sweeping guidelines, the official schedule that includes tips to help you prepare, and a highlighted map denoting when your area will be swept.
