How does Boston street cleaning work?

A clean city doesn’t happen on its own. Most Boston neighborhoods operate a daytime street cleaning schedule one day out of the week between April 1 to November 30. In other neighborhoods, it runs from March 1 to December 31. Don’t worry, you don’t have to remember the schedules on top of your head.

Here are general rules to keep in mind:
If your street is cleaned every week, it will also be cleaned on the fifth week of the month during months with five weeks.
Street cleaning still occurs on days when it is raining

Do the rules change when it snows?

It’s important to stay alert for snow emergency updates during the winter months. Once the snow arrives, get used to a few changes to the usual parking rules. If the city declares a snow emergency, you must move your car from the main roads to make way for snow plows.

In general, street cleaning routes and schedules remain the same.

Can you park after the street sweeper passes?

“I saw the street sweeper pass,” isn’t a good enough reason to park your car. Sometimes, one cleaning round won’t do. The street sweeper may come back a second time. There is no law in Boston saving you from a parking ticket just because you saw the street sweeper pass. Always follow the parking signs to avoid troublesome parking tickets.

How much does a street cleaning ticket cost?

If you park your car on the street and overnight street cleaning occurs, your ticket will cost $90 dollars. Daytime street cleaning tickets, however, are less expensive and cost $40 which may save you a buck or two. In Charlestown, tickets due to daytime street cleaning cost $90 dollars.

When are Boston street cleaning holidays?

On city holidays, street sweeping is suspended during the day but streets are still swept at night. There are a number of city-wide holidays that suspend street cleaning.

Here are holidays when daytime street cleaning is suspended:
January 1 – New Year’s Day
