The City of San Mateo has many street cleaning routes and schedules
that can be hard to keep track of. Certain areas, such as downtown
and the North Central neighborhood, have signs which prohibit street
parking during sweeping hours. To avoid unnecessary parking tickets
the City of San Mateo offers this alert tool to remind you a day in
advance of your sweeping schedule.
For the rest of the city that does not have parking restrictions, the City relies on voluntary compliance from residents to keep curbs clear so the sweeping machines can get the most effective sweep. Please help do your part to keep San Mateo fresh and clean by moving your car off the curb when your street is going to be swept.
