Heavy snow delays start of street cleaning

One slight upside to all the snow last week-- Evanstonians will have at least a two-week break from having to move cars for street sweeping this year.


Evanston officials today announced that the heavy snow this month will cause a postponement of the start of street cleaning operations that normally begin March 1.

They say the parking restrictions for street cleaning won’t be enforced at least until March 15, which they’re forecasting will be the earliest date all the snow will be gone and street cleaning can begin.

The street cleaning schedule is available online, and residents can sign up for email or text message notifications about when cars need to be moved to let the street sweepers do their job.
