Piedmont Street Sweeping Schedule for 2018-2019

On Monday, September 10th, the City of Piedmont began scheduled street sweeping for 2018-2019.

Using the successful schedule created in 2016, sweeping will now be conducted on the day after green waste, recycling, and trash are picked up for your home.

It will be a three week cycle alternating between the odd and even numbered sides of the street, followed by a week of no sweeping.

As emphasized by the City Council, one of the key elements of having an effective street sweeping program is for the residents to be aware of the schedule in advance so that they can relocate their cars and/or move the green waste, recycling, and trash cans to create free and clear access up to the curb.

Since Piedmont relies on residents to move their vehicles, knowledge of the sweeping dates is essential. To help promote resident cooperation and knowledge, the Council approved linking the street sweeping schedule to the regular green waste, recycling, and trash pickup days.

This should be a simple and systematic method to ensure that residents know when to move their vehicles.

The street sweeping schedule consists of three parts, all in a single document: 1. Calendar showing which zones will be picked up on each day (Pages 1-2) 2. List of Pickup dates organized by street. (Pages 3-10) 3. Street Sweeping Map, showing the zones and the days of the week for green waste, recycling, and trash pickup as well as street sweeping. (Page 11)

The schedule is attached to this post and available on the City’s web site at:

  1. I’m a renter on the Oakland side of Rose Ave. Is there a way to publish the street sweeping schedule on the Parking Permit signs around the neighborhood? It would save so much confusion for those of us that don’t own property and don’t get a notice. I’ve lived here for 9 years and I wish the street sweeping schedule was more clear like the signs they have around other Bay Area cities. I can’t find a schedule this year on the City Of Piedmont website figuring out the dates is a lot of work and not fair to those that rent and don’t own or live on the Oakland side of the streets that share the border with Piedmont.

  2. The Piedmont Post published something called “Street Sweeping Schedule – 2019. If we’re supposed to figure out our sweeping schedule based on our recycling-pickup date is and odd-even addresses by rotation, why do we need to know what zone our street is in? What do zones have to do with scheduling?
