North End and South End Exceptions
Street sweeping in the North End and South End neighborhoods runs from March 1 through December 31; daytime program parking restrictions are not in effect from January 1 to February 28. During the winter, street cleaning and parking restrictions occur during both the day and night
The City's Daytime Neighborhood Street Cleaning program currently runs from March 1 through November 30 for all neighborhoods except the North End and the South End. The daytime program parking restrictions are not in effect from December 1 through February 28 except in the North End and the South End.
Mechanical sweepers operate weather-permitting. During the winter, street cleaning and parking restrictions are nighttime-only except in the North End and South End 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.
You may also notify us of the discrepancy via our online form.
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.
