Memorial Day Holiday Affects Street Sweeping and Trash Collection
Due to the observance of Memorial Day on Monday, May 27, trash collection and street sweeping will be on holiday schedule. Trash will not be collected on Monday, May 27. All residents should place trash for collection on the day after their regular route day. For example, residents on Monday‘s route should place their trash for collection on Tuesday, Tuesday‘s route on Wednesday, and so on for the entire week. Friday‘s route will be collected on Saturday. The regular collection schedule resumes on Monday, June 3.
There will be no street sweeping Monday, May 27 through Friday, May 31. Due to the holiday trash collection schedule, trash carts are at the curb one day later than usual, which conflicts with scheduled sweeping days in many neighborhoods. Residents should place trash carts at the curb per the holiday schedule. Streets that are not swept due to the holiday are not rescheduled. If you have questions about the holiday maintenance schedule, please contact the Public Works Maintenance Division at 714-960-8861.
The Street Sweeping program was established in response to Federal and State Clean Water regulations to remove debris from the streets and gutters before it can enter the storm drain system. These regulations were created to provide pollution control and to reduce the flow of urban runoff entering our waterways and ocean.
Parking control provides motivation for residents to move their vehicles, which allows for more efficient sweeping and more thorough debris removal. On a weekly basis, the city's street sweepers collect nearly 70 tons of rubbish from the streets and gutters.
For more information about the Street Sweeping program or your neighborhood's street sweeping schedule, contact Maintenance Operations at 960-8861.
If you received a parking citation due to street sweeping and would like more information, please call (800) 553-4412.
If your regular street sweeping day falls on one of the following holidays, your street will not be swept that day. Streets that are not swept due to holidays are not rescheduled, but are skipped until the next regular sweep day. There is no make-up schedule for street sweeping. Streets will be swept according to schedule on any holidays that are not designated "No Sweep." By City Council approval on January 16, 2001, no street sweeping parking citations are issued for the week between Christmas and New Year's.
