When and why does road sweeping occur?

The Town is required per its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit to sweep streets. This is generally done in the spring and fall. The primary purpose for sweeping is to remove pollutants from the roadway that may be washed into our local water resource areas. Please do not blow your private yard waste into the town’s rightof-way.
