Town Of Moraga

Street Sweeping June 25-27, 2018
On June 25th, 26th, and 27th, all 56 centerline miles of public streets will be swept by a mechanical broom sweeper. Since the Town sweeps twice a year, once in Spring/Summer and then in Fall/Winter depending on needs, please do not place your garbage, recycle, and compost receptacles out the day before but on the morning of pickup to avoid sweeper conflicts. Sweeping should not occur in areas on days where solid waste is being serviced. Street sweepers do not have a set schedule to maximize sweeping coverage in a single day; therefore, the Town does not post “no parking” signage and recommends parking vehicles in your garage or driveway.
