Street Sweeping and Sidewalk Cleaning

Summer Street Sweeping

The City of Santa Monica maintains a street sweeping program to comply with provisions of the federally mandated Clean Water Act. Street sweeping helps to remove pollutants which can potentially reach the Santa Monica Bay.

How often are the streets swept?
Street sweeping occurs on a monthly basis.  Regular street sweeping is performed Monday through Friday beginning the first Monday of the month
.  Street sweeping in the beach parking lots and in the Downtown area will continue as scheduled.  >> Click here to view the street sweeping schedule.

Do I need to move my car for street sweeping
City staff requests that you park your cars off the street on your scheduled sweeping day. Sweeping around parked cars requires more time and is a dangerous maneuver. Moving your cars will allow the sweeper to do a better job for you and your neighbors. >>Learn more.

Visit the city’s interactive SaMoMap to find out the street sweeping schedule in your neighborhood. Click the Layers icon at the bottom of the page then expand the ‘City Services’ layer group and turn on the ‘Street Sweeping Days’ layer to reveal the day. Pan and zoom as needed using the tools above. 


Pressure Washing

We use modern equipment capable of capturing and recycling wash water. Our pressure washing services are held to the same environmental standards as for street sweeping
. No water enters the storm drain system.
We pressure wash sidewalks, parking structures and loading docks for a reasonable fee.
Requests for pressure washing may be made by calling (310) 458-2223.
