WORCESTER – Worcester’s Residential Spring Sweeping Program will begin on Monday, April 1, according to the City of Worcester.

The program will take between 10 to 12 weeks to complete and will take place Mon thru Friday from 7:30 AM to 4 PM.

The residential street sweeping schedule will follow the trash collection routes. Crews will start with the Thursday trash collection area and then progress to Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Wednesday.

The City began sweeping the major arterial streets on March 18.

The City is asking business and residence property owners to clean and clear their sidewalks in advance of the street sweepers. Yard waste — such as leaves and branches — are not to be placed in the street during sweeping and will not be picked up. Yard waste must be brought to yard waste sites at Millbury St., Chandler St. or Clark St. beginning Wednesday, April 3.

The Department of Public Works is also urging residents to move their parked cars that may interfere with the street sweeping. Vehicles that do interfere with the sweeping will be tagged and may be towed away. There is a $50 fine for cars that interfere with the sweeping.
