2023 Street Sweeping Season Starts April 10th
2023 street sweeping begins April 10th. Tickets for street sweeper parking violations will be issued starting May 1.
To reduce strain on the wastewater treatment plant and to maintain a visually attractive streetscape, the City of Elkins operates a street sweeper from late spring through early fall. We always announce the start and end dates of the street sweeper season on this website, on the city’s Facebook page, and in local media outlets.
Elkins sweeps streets Monday-Friday during the spring, summer, and fall, visiting each street once per week. During the street sweeper’s operating season, city police will ticket vehicles left parked on streets scheduled for street sweeping. Please download and review the 2023 Street Sweeper Schedule to learn when you will need to move your car. You can also access an interactive map here.
Notification of cancelled street-sweeper runs will be issued when possible. However, when the sweeper route is cut short due to mechanical problems, inclement weather, operator emergencies, or other factors beyond our control, it is not always possible to issue such notifications. The best practice is to establish a routine of moving vehicles on the appointed day and continue that practice weekly until the end of sweeper season.
Thanks for helping us keep Elkins beautiful!
