Street Sweeping

Overview and Goals

The City of Pullman Maintenance Division strives to provide street sweeping services on a regular basis throughout the entire city. The guidelines for street sweeping timelines vary throughout the year.

Spring clean-up sweeping occurs following the last snowfall of winter and sweepers run each day until gravel removal has occurred throughout the city.

Following spring clean-up, but no later than May 1 each year, scheduled residential street sweeping will go into effect, and continue through October 31.

Residential street sweeping is not limited to the May-October months. Additional street sweeping occurs in conjunction with the annual residential leaf collection program that occurs each November. Street sweeping will also occur as weather permits throughout the winter months, including the scheduled days for residential areas, if snow is not on the ground, or imminently predicted.
