Help Keep Medford’s Streets Clean
Dear Medford Resident,
The City’s street sweeping program takes place on main streets, as well as all side streets, on a regular schedule every Spring and Fall. The Public Works sweepers remove dirt and debris to make your street look better. All vehicles must be off the street in order for the sweeper to do a good job. The snow removal process, throughout the winter, is critical for clearing our streets in a timely manner.
There are several ways you can familiarize yourself with street sweeping schedules, potential date changes, and snow removal. These notifications are posted at www.medford.org (also see below). Another way is to get email notifications by signing on to the City Connect CTY system, or get phone messages sent to your home or cell phone by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (781) 391-6414 and leaving your name, address, and contact number. By doing this you will receive emergency and informational notifications.
We need your help and cooperation to be successful! Help us keep Medford streets clean and clear!
Your help in moving your vehicles from the street the day it is to be cleaned will make it easier for the sweeping equipment.
Tagging will be utilized if deemed necessary.
As always we appreciate your patience and cooperation.
It is highly recommended that residents sign up for FREE city alerts via phone, text, or email to receive important updates. To sign up, click here and then click sign me up.
