Street Sweeper

As of October 16, 2020, street sweeping operations have ended for the season. Street sweeper parking rules will not be enforced until spring 2021 (date to be announced).

To help keep our city as clean as possible, 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, via the city’s informational email list (subscribe using the form in the left sidebar of any page on this site), and on the city’s Facebook page.

During the street sweeper’s operating season, city police will ticket cars left on the street. (Ticketing, which was suspended during the coronavirus state of emergency, resumed July 20, 2020.) Please download and review the 2020 Street Sweeper Schedule to learn when you will need to move your car. Notification of cancelled sweeper runs will be issued as needed and when time permits.

However, when the sweeper route is cut short due to mechanical problems, changing weather conditions, operator emergencies or other factors beyond our control there is no way to notify residents of individual streets or wards that the run has been cancelled. If we know the day before that the next day’s run will be cancelled, we will do our best to get notification out. The best practice is simply to plan to move your vehicle on the appointed day and continue that practice until the end of sweeper season.

Thanks for helping us keep Elkins beautiful!
