Street Sweeping Operations
  When does sweeping take place?
The City sweeps its 340 miles of arterial streets on a regular schedule from April until October depending on weather conditions. Currently most of the arterial streets are swept at least 8 times per year.

Residential streets are swept in the early spring and late fall. Alleys are swept after the spring sweeping. The City has 340 miles of arterial streets, 530 miles of residential streets, and 330 miles of alleys.

Depositing any material (i.e. leaves, trash, dirt) from the boulevard or private property into the street is prohibited. Municipal Code Section 106.02

How is it done?

The City has two types of sweepers, the Elgin Pelican and the Elgin Crosswind. The Pelicans are the workhorses of the fleet. They have capacity to pick up gravel, leaves and debris as well as sand and dirt.

The Pelicans can empty their loads directly into dump trucks so that all of the sweepings can be hauled away to be recycled, composted or land-filled. Because of the screening that is done, very little is land-filled.

Fall residential sweeping was completed on November 20, 2013.
Spring residential sweep to begin in April/May of 2014.
