The Town of Winthrop conducts Street Sweeping operations on the last full week of the month (last week with a Friday) from April through October between 7:00 AM and 4:00 PM on the day of a street’s trash collection. If there is a holiday on the week sweeping would normally occur, sweeping is done a week early.
Town ordinance prohibits parking in a manner that impedes the street sweeper. Violation of the street sweeping ordinance carries a $40.00 fine, and your vehicle can be towed.
Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic we realize that many people are staying home, resulting in additional vehicles parked on the streets during the day. Sweeping will continue as scheduled in order to remove debris accumulated on roadways from the winter months, increase safety and sanitation, and help keep our storm drains clear. We are asking motorists who are able to remove vehicles from the streets on their scheduled sweeping day to do so. But, due to the current public health concerns, tickets will not be issued for street sweeping violations at this time. For information on why street sweeping is important, please click here.
