Street Sweeping Returns Week of July 15

Street sweeping returns to the City of Falls Church the week of  July 15. The City asks the community to move vehicles off the streets from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the day their area is scheduled for street sweeping. Doing so helps crews do a more efficient and effective job of preventing more than 200 tons of debris from entering our local waterways.

The street sweeping schedule for the week of July 15 is subject to change for weather:

  • Residential areas south of Broad St: Monday, July 15 and Tuesday, July 16
  • Residential areas north of Broad St: Thursday, July 18 and Friday, July 19
  • Commercial areas and municipal parking areas will be swept in the evening and overnight

Schedule is subject to change due to weather and the amount of debris on the streets

Residents are asked to move vehicles off of residential streets between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., where possible. Parked vehicles reduce the effectiveness of the sweepers because most debris and pollutants accumulate in the gutter pan.

Residents can help reduce pollutants in our streams by using a broom, shovel and dustpan to sweep the gutter pan in front of their residence when debris accumulates -- including rocks, leaves, trash, large sticks, and sediment. This is especially helpful in areas that routinely have cars parked on the street or are under low hanging trees. Dispose of debris in the trash, not with yard waste.

Below is all the debris accumulated during the April 2018 street sweep.
