Street Sweeping Begins

Weather permitting; the City of Greenfield will begin street sweeping, Wednesday, March 23, 2022, starting at 7:00 a.m. and is expected to be finished in two weeks (weather dependent). The contract this year has been awarded to BDM Sweeper Services of Keene, NH.

The parking lots and downtown will be swept at night. The remainder of the sweeping will be done during the daytime. The general area for street sweeping is south of Silver Street (included) and east of I-91.

In addition to the spring sweeping, the downtown business district will be swept approximately every two weeks. Business owners in the downtown area are reminded that it is their responsibility to sweep and keep their sidewalks clean. Litter should be picked up and not swept into the street.

Residents are requested to observe the tips below to facilitate the operation:
• Avoid parking on the street during daylight hours until after your street is swept.
• Do not sweep sand into piles; the sweeper can do a better job if the sand is not consolidated. If the homeowner wants to pick up the sand it can be brought to the Transfer Station without charge but do not place it in the trash.
• Do not rake grass, leaves or branches into the street.
• We do ask your patience with the noise and also water is used for dust control however, a small amount of dust is unavoidable.

Any questions or concerns, please call 772-1528.
