Bismarck's Street Sweeping Program
Each spring the Public Works Street Department conducts an annual street sweeping program. This program is initiated to clean up the dirt and debris that has accumulated on the City streets over the winter.
Street sweeping is one of the most cost-effective ways to remove the sediments and associated pollutants, such as metals, petroleum products, that accumulate on streets before they wash into local watersheds. Over 1,000 lane miles of roadway are swept each year. The program takes approximately six weeks to complete.
Due to the cooperation of Bismarck residents, the City of Bismarck Street Department has been able to clean the streets in a very efficient and timely manner. The City of Bismarck would like to thank its citizens for their cooperation.
Sweeping Guidelines for Residents and Businesses
- Residents are asked to move vehicles and trailers off city streets before the sweepers are in the area.
- Residents and businesses are reminded not to rake or blow leaves or grass into the street.
- Grass clippings plug our storm water system; please keep grass clippings out of the gutter line and street.Adopt an Inlet.
- Do not rake the sand from your boulevard into the street. Please rake the sand into a box and set it out for garbage collection or take it to the landfill during regular business hours.
