This week’s warm weather may have you thinking about spring — and here’s a related thought — street cleaning is scheduled to resume in Evanston next week.

Cleaning will begin on Wednesday, March 1, and, weather permitting, will continue through Friday, Dec. 15.


New parking signs installed last year show the days and times that parking restrictions will be in place on each street. Signs are posted at the beginning and end of each block. The 2017 street cleaning map and schedule can be found online.

In addition to the parking signage, the City offers courtesy text message and email notifications to remind residents to move their vehicles prior to street cleaning. Residents can sign up online for parking notifications for their street cleaning zone or by calling or texting 847-448-4311.

Additional fall street cleaning operations will take place in November and December to allow Public Works crews to collect fallen leaves and debris. Dates when voluntary parking compliance is requested can be found in the schedule online, or by calling/texting 847-448-4311.

The City reminds community members that blowing or raking leaves into the street is a nuisance, and can cause flooding and block sewers. Violators will be fined.
