Tips to Help Us to Keep Things Running on Schedule...

This schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather. Should inclement weather prevent sweepers from working in your area as scheduled, they will return seven (7) days from the date originally scheduled.

For public awareness, Lynn Community Television Channel 3/22 and Verizon Channel 37/38 also broadcast this schedule.

Sweeping operations will be conducted from 7AM until 3 PM

Please remove all cars from the street and encourage your neighbors to do the same for a cleaner LYNN. Where necessary, vehicles impeding sweeping operations will be ticketed or towed in accordance with City Ordinances.   Leaves pushed into the streets from lawns will not be swept up.
