Street Sweeping

Anne Arundel County's street sweeping program is designed to keep debris out of storm drains, our creeks, rivers and ultimately the Chesapeake Bay. We removed approximately 300 tons of debris in fiscal 2016 using two (2) street sweepers.
Sweeping Schedule

Our neighborhood streets are relatively clean because of the work of conscientious residents who assist us by keeping the areas in front of their homes free of litter and debris. Residential streets are not included in our program for routine street sweeping.
Main thoroughfares, business districts and industrial areas are scheduled for street sweeping twice (x2) a month. We target arterial, major collector and roads in business districts for routine sweeping. This allows us to capture the most debris for each available hour of street sweeping effort.
