MEDFORD – The Medford DPW will conduct spring 2022 street sweeping on secondary roads and side streets over the course of several weeks, beginning on Tuesday, April 19th.

In the interest of public health and public safety, street sweeping is conducted to clear leaves and debris from streets and catch basins, allowing for proper drainage of water, snow and ice, and making sure that our City’s streets are clean and safe. The DPW conducts two “Big Sweep” events of all secondary roads twice each year, once in the spring and once in the fall.

Street sweeping will generally be conducted Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Street sweeping is divided into 14 zones with one zone conducted each day. The full schedule, including a map and a list of all 14 zones can be found at In the event of heavy rain or severe weather, sweeping may be cancelled on a particular day, and would be rescheduled for the end of the regular schedule. All updates will be posted on as well as the City’s social media feeds.

To be notified of specific dates of street sweeping in your neighborhood, residents are reminded to check that you are signed up, for the City’s Reverse 911 call and email system.
