Autumn Street Sweeping

The City of Whitehorse is well known for its tree lined streets and autumn is synonymous with falling leaves. Whitehorse City Council's street sweepers will be out in force again this year sweeping leaves and other debris from the streets.

Council's autumn street sweeping fortnightly schedule ( PDF 96.76KB) will commence on Monday 16 March 2020 and continue until Friday 10 July 2020.

Whitehorse has 135 streets that experience heavy leaf falls. These streets will be swept every two weeks from 16 March 2020.

For the month of May the frequency will be increased to every week

At the end of May the streets will revert to being swept every two weeks. All other streets are swept every four weeks, dependent on leaf volume and weather conditions.

NOTE: There will be no sweeping during Easter from Friday 10 April 2020 to Monday 13 April 2020. We will endeavour to sweep these streets on Thursday 9 April 2020.

Residents are advised not to park their vehicles on the street on the days that the streets are being swept to ensure sweeping is more effective. The sweeping is to collect leaves and debris from Council's streets and not from private properties.
