COVINGTON, KY - The City's Department of Public Improvements (DPI) will begin their seasonal street sweeping schedule starting on October 3.
DPI has divided the City into twelve sections which will be swept over a two month period between October and November.
To find out when your street will be swept, first identify which section you are located in using this map: cov.ky/streetsweepmap.
Click on the section to see which days DPI will be in your neighborhood. The street sweeping schedule further narrows these dates based on north, south, east or west sides of streets. A listing of individual streets and what section they are located in is also available. Download the map and schedule here.
On-street parking is restricted on sweep days. In all instances where permanent signage is not available, 24 hour notice will be given via temporary signage in the area of impact before street sweeping begins.
Residents should follow these guidelines on street sweeping days:
- Review the zone map and see when DPI crews plan to come to your area. Avoid parking in areas where 'No Parking' signs have been posted. If cars are found parked in the area on that day, vehicles may be ticketed.
- The day before DPI crews are scheduled to sweep in your area we encourage you to clean the sidewalk in front of your residence and sweep any small debris into the street to be picked up by the sweepers. Please avoid placing large items in the street, however.
- If your street has trees that you think need to be serviced, now is a great time to call DPI and let them know. Arborists are also notified of the street sweeping schedule and will often visit these areas at the same time to take advantage of the clear streets to access high branches.
Residential Leaf Collection will take place in November and December. Watch your inbox and the City's website for the schedule.
