Street Sweeping Program

City of South Gate Street Sweeping Program

In addition to keeping City streets clean, the Street Sweeping Program is in response to Federal and State Clean Water regulations to remove debris from the streets and gutters before it can enter the storm drain system. These regulations were created to provide pollution control and to reduce the flow of pollutants found in urban runoff from entering our waterways and ocean.

On a weekly basis, the city's street sweepers collect nearly 2 tons of rubbish from the streets and gutters. 
You can join the City in keeping city streets clean.  Please do not sweep trash onto City streets from private property to avoid littering. 

Street Sweeping Schedule

City streets are swept Monday through Friday, on their regular posted schedule, except on the observed holidays listed below. If your regular street sweeping day falls on one of the observed holidays, services will resume on the regularly scheduled day of the following week. Street sweeping parking restrictions will not be enforced on the observed holidays and therefore, citations related to street sweeping parking restrictions will not be issued. To avoid parking citations on the observed holidays, vehicles must be parked in accordance with all other parking regulations.  

The holidays observed for the Street Sweeping Program are the following: 
            New Year's Day 
            Martin Luther King, Jr., Day 
            President's Day
            Cesar Chavez Day

For more information about the Street Sweeping Program or your neighborhood's street sweeping schedule, please contact the Field Operations Division at (323) 563-5785.

As a reminder, one of the goals for enforcing the street sweeping parking restrictions is to motivate the public to move their vehicles, to allow for more efficient sweeping and thorough debris removal. If you received a parking citation due to street sweeping and would like more information, please call (323) 563-5493.
