City of Greenfield Spring Street Sweeping Underway

GREENFIELD – The City of Greenfield will begin street sweeping Monday, March 25, through Friday, March 29, weather permitting. The contract this year has been awarded to Arlington Sweeping.

Street sweeping will occur during the day from 6:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The downtown and municipal/school parking lots will be swept overnight. The general area for street sweeping is south of Silver Street (included) and east of I-91.

In addition to spring sweeping, the downtown business district will be swept as needed. 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. Please do not place sand in the trash.
  • Do not rake grass, leaves or branches into the street.
  • Your patience with the noise and dust is appreciated. Water is used for dust control, but a small amount of dust is unavoidable.

Any questions or concerns, please call the Department of Public Works at 413-772-1528.
