Street Sweeping Route List (.pdf)
Did you know that Newport commits to sweeping every single street in the City twice per year?
Our Street Sweeping Program runs from March until November, as weather permits. The City has two primary sweepers used for the residential streets and business areas along with sections of the Almy Pond Watershed Management Area.
The sweeping program currently consists of overnight sweeping which includes sweeping the City’s main roads, residential streets, business areas, parking lots and for special events such as the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade.
Residential street sweeping follows designated route lists Monday through Thursday, beginning the sweeping season in the Lower Thames Street Business District (Route List 7A). To find out when your street may be swept, please refer to the Overnight Street Sweeping Route List. Depending on weather, staffing and equipment it can take up to two weeks to complete one route. To alert residents of the parking restrictions for the evening's sweeping schedule, temporary No Parking Signs are posted and the streets are listed here.
