Street Sweeping and Sidewalk Cleaning

Street Sweeping Update 2021

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?
Starting Monday, August 30, 2021, street sweeping will return to once a week.
 Follow your NO PARKING street signs for the weekly street sweeping schedule. 

Do I need to move my car for street sweeping?
Street sweeping parking violations will be enforced. Please ensure you move your vehicle to avoid a parking ticket. Remember: There is no street sweeping on national holidays like September 6 (Labor Day), November 25-26 (Thanksgiving), December 24 (Christmas Eve), December 25 (Christmas Day), December 31 (New Year’s Eve), and January 1 (New Year’s Day).

For questions: call 3-1-1, or email

Visit the city’s interactive SaMoMap to find out the street sweeping schedule in your neighborhood. Pan and zoom as needed.


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.
