ResponsibilitiesThe Street Maintenance Section is responsible for maintenance and repair of the City's storm drain and street networks including signs, markings, asphalt, and concrete. They also remove graffiti and dead animals (both domestic and wild) from the public right-of-way; respond to flooding and hazardous spills; and clean creeks and ditches.
Street SweepingStreet Sweeping services are provided externally by Recology Sonoma Marin. Residential streets are scheduled to be swept once a month. Commercial streets are to be swept more frequently due to increased debris generation. The City of Santa Rosa encourages everyone to help keep debris off the streets and out of our creeks. During storms, much of the debris deposited on the streets between sweepings is washed into the storm drain system and directly into local creeks.
View the Recology Sonoma Marin Street Sweeping Map to see which day of the month your street sweeping is scheduled in your neighborhood (Please note, the link will take you to an external webpage maintained by Recology Sonoma Marin).
