Spring Cleaning


Springtime has finally arrived! And this week we began the process of cleaning Providence's streets after the long winter. Crews will be working on an aggressive schedule to give our Capital City the spring cleaning it needs and deserves.

Cleaning crews will work for six weeks to sweep throughout the city, making our neighborhoods more attractive and roads more passable for bicyclists and pedestrians. Click here for the full street sweeping schedule.

Overnight parking permit holders and all residents are asked to be mindful of temporary 'alternate side of the street parking’ signs during the cleanup process. Permit holders can continue parking on the street, but all residents are asked to heed the signs so that trucks can fully sweep our streets.

In another sure sign of spring, the Department of Public Works has announced that free yard debris collection will begin on Monday, April 14. Residents are encouraged to leave yard debris out to be composted on regular recycling and trash collection days.

Please take care not to place yard debris in trash or recycling containers. When yard waste is mixed in big green recycling cans, it contaminates entire loads of recycling and costs the City money. For more information on how to properly dispose of yard waste through the City’s free collection program, visit the Department of Public Works’ website.

With the warmer weather here, we take great pride in getting Providence ready to showcase all our Capital City has to offer.
