Street Sweeping Lookup & No-Tow Registration
During inclement winter weather, street cleaning may be cancelled due to heavy rains, ice and snow. Please visit cityofboston.gov/snow or contact the Mayor's 24 Hour Hotline for updated information at 617-635-4500.
Winter Street Sweeping
During January and February, only nightime (e.g. 12:01am-7am) sweeping and parking restrictions are in effect.
On March 1, daytime sweeping and parking enforcement resumes in North End, South End and Beacon Hill neighborhoods. On April 1 daytime sweeping resumes in all other neighborhoods
The City's Daytime Neighborhood Street Cleaning program currently runs from April 1 through November 30 for all neighborhoods except the North End, the South End, and Beacon Hill. The daytime program parking restrictions are not in effect during the months of December and March except in the North End, the South End, and Beacon Hill. There will be no posted street sweeping or program related parking enforcement during the months of January and February.
Mechanical sweepers operate weather-permitting. During the winter, street cleaning and parking restrictions are nighttime-only except in the North End, the South End, and Beacon Hill neighborhoods.
In the event that Public Works decides to cancel street sweeping and parking enforcement for weather related reasons, notifications will be sent out by e-mail to NO-TOW subscribers or you may contact the Mayor's 24 Hour Hotline for updated information at 617-635-4500.
Use this form to search schedules for posted street sweeping, to see when parking restrictions take effect. You can find schedules by street name, or by a combination of neighborhood and day. Lookup results are presented by District (which approximates a neighborhood), Side (odd/even), and Section (for longer streets chopped up by cross streets).
After your search results are displayed, you can register for No-Tow email reminders.
If you notice a discrepancy between what is listed on our website and/or sent out via email and what is posted on street signs, always follow street signs first.

About Our Program
Public Works has made several changes to this program to better align the sweeping schedule with trash/recycling days in an effort to boost the impact of the City's clean-up services and reduce neighborhood trash and litter. Please check the posted signs in your area. The Night Street Cleaning program is focused on sections of the Downtown area and also main thoroughfares city-wide and the parking regulations are in effect year-round. All street sweeping schedules are dependent on weather and roadway conditions.
2013 Daytime Street Sweeping Program Resumes
Neighborhood streets throughout the city will be swept clean on a rotating schedule each week through Nov 30th.
