Street Sweeping in Eugene
The Public Works Maintenance Division is responsible for maintaining more than 1,300 lane miles including streets, alleys and bike paths. The Stormwater Maintenance Crew uses a fleet of five street sweepers to remove debris from these streets, alleys and bike paths.
Staff members on this crew are continuously busy throughout the year, not only performing routine sweeps, but also playing a crucial role in leaf collection, snow and ice control sand recovery programs, and responding to vehicle accident scenes and reports of broken glass or debris in the right-of-way. This makes the streets safer for motorists and cyclists, and it also helps keep debris and pollutants out of local waterways, which is why street sweeping is funded by stormwater user fees in Eugene.
COMING SOON - Sweeper Track
Thank you for participating in Sweeping Notification Program! We are in the process of evolving our notification system and are discontinuing this current email service. We will be rolling out a new program later this year called Sweeper Track. This program will allow residents to look up their address on the City’s website and see their route and if the route is in progress of being swept. It will also show our progress and where they’re expected to work the next day. Our hope is that this will give more accurate information into our timing and let people understand when we’ll be on their street.
We apologize for any inconvenience this change in service may cause, but we’re excited for the next step in the program.
Thank you, again, for participating in the Sweeping Notification Program. Your participation helps in keeping our streets clean and ensure we’re returning clean water back to our rivers.
