Street Sweeping to begin April 17th

Weather permitting, the Town of Greenfield will begin street sweeping the week of April 17th.  This year, the contract has been awarded to Split Excavating of Hadley, MA. 

This winter, operations only used salt; absolutely no sand was used.  With this change it will not be necessary to sweep all roadways.  We will be concentrating on the downtown area due to litter and debris. The residential street sweeping is expected to be finished in two to three weeks (weather dependent). 

The parking lots and downtown will be swept at night.  The remainder of the sweeping will be done during the daytime.

In addition to the spring sweeping, the downtown business district will be swept every month or as needed.  Business owners 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 a homeowner wants to pick up the sand, they can bring it to the Transfer Station without charge but do not place it in the trash.
  • 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 413-772-1528, extension 6100.
