Per MCDOT: The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) annual Street Sweeping Program runs from Monday, April 10, through June and sweeps over 4,100 lane miles of residential roadways in Montgomery County. Last year, over 1,000 tons of debris were collected and removed by crews. Sweeping routes are prioritized based on their proximity to sensitive watershed areas that are identified by the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection.
MCDOT will post “No Parking” signs a few days in advance of sweeping operations. Residents may find the sweeping schedule online by calling MC311 or visiting MCDOT’s Residential Street Sweeping website at montgomerycountymd.gov/DOT-Highway/streetsweep. These efforts help to promote the health and vibrancy of our local watersheds as well as the overall health of the Chesapeake Bay.
