Neighborhood street sweeping will take place on both sides of the street on the same day.

Sweep days are the next day after the regularly scheduled trash day. To find a specific street sweeping date, locate what zone your street is in on the 2017 Spring Street Sweeping Schedule and match it with the calendar. Monday sweep schedules are for the preceding Friday's trash day. Street Sweeping schedules can be found on-line at www.salem.com, at the DPS office on 5 Jefferson Ave, City Hall, and the Salem Public Library.
Residents will be able to use entrance corridor streets as alternative parking areas on the day of their neighborhood sweep. Entrance corridor streets are Boston St., Bridge St., Essex St. (from Boston St. to North/Summer St.), Lafayette St. (from Derby St. to Marblehead line), Loring Ave., and North St. Once a neighborhood street is swept, residents will be able to move their vehicles back onto their street. For a complete list of parking alternatives go to www.salem.com. Please remember if you choose to move your vehicle to an entrance corridor street that you must adhere to all current parking restrictions on these entrance corridors. All existing parking regulations on entrance corridors must be adhered to or your vehicle will be ticketed and/or towed. This includes resident only restrictions.
Certain weather conditions prohibit the use of the street sweepers: during moderate to heavy rainfall and extreme cold temperatures sweepers will not be able to operate. Weather cancellations will be posted on www.salem.com.
