(MEDFORD) — The Medford DPW will conduct spring street sweeping over the course of several weeks, beginning on Monday, April 22. In the interest of public health and public safety, the DPW will proceed with the spring Big Sweep over several weeks to clear leaves and debris from streets and catch basins, allowing for proper drainage of water and making sure that our City’s streets are clean and safe. The DPW conducts two Big Sweep events on all secondary roads twice each year, once in the spring and once in the fall.  

Street sweeping will be conducted Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8 am and 6 pm. Street sweeping is divided into 14 zones with one zone conducted each day. The full schedule and a list of all 14 zones can be found at In the event of heavy rain or severe weather, sweeping may be cancelled on that day, and would be rescheduled for the end of the regular schedule. All updates will be posted on as well as the City’s social media feeds.  

To be notified of specific dates of street sweeping in your neighborhood, residents are reminded to sign up for the City’s Reverse 911 call and email system.
