It’s not an April Fool’s joke. There will be a new sweeping schedule beginning Sunday.
Neighborhoods will be cleaned on the same identified day each month – for example, always the third Tuesday of the month, or the fourth Wednesday of the month, or the first Friday of the month.
The city urges residents to move their vehicles from the curb on the monthly cleaning day to allow the sweepers to do their jobs. If vehicles are not moved, the litter and debris remain in the neighborhood until the following month’s cleaning. During the rainy season, this debris can flow back into the Bay.
This year, to save on printing and postage and to be more environmentally friendly, the City will not be mailing out printed copies of the schedule. Instead, the schedules are available at the Community GIS at www.redwoodcity.org/gis.
Click on “Search” then enter your address. General property information will appear on the right side of the screen, and near the bottom of that window will be your next upcoming street cleaning. A street sweeping map and schedule for your neighborhood is also available.
A map of all the street sweeping districts is available by going to the left side of the page, and under “Layers,” clicking on “Other” and then checking the box for Street Cleaning Districts.
