2018 Evanston Street Cleaning Operations Begin March 1

Street Cleaning

EVANSTON, ILLINOISThe City of Evanston’s Public Works Agency will begin 2018 street cleaning operations on Thursday, March 1. Street cleaning will run through Friday, December 14, weather permitting.

Parking signage posted at the beginning and end of each block indicates the specific days and times that parking restrictions will be in place on each street (i.e. First Thursday of the Month, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.). The 2018 street cleaning map and schedule can be found at

New this year, residential streets in Zone 4, located south of Main Street, will be swept once per month on the fourth Tuesday and fourth Wednesday of the month. This includes former Residential Special Zone 4 areas. The schedule posted online reflects these changes, and street signs will be updated in the coming weeks.

Parking is prohibited only on the sides and dates indicated on the street signs. Parking will be prohibited as indicated and residents are reminded to always check the street signs before parking their cars.

In addition to the parking signage, the City offers courtesy text message and email notifications to remind residents to move their vehicles prior to street cleaning. Residents can sign up for parking notifications for their street cleaning zone by visiting, or by calling/texting 847-448-4311. Residents who've signed up for street cleaning notifications previously do not have to update their notifications unless their address or parking location has changed.

The City reminds community members that blowing or raking leaves into the street is a nuisance, and can cause flooding and block sewers. Violators will be fined. 

For questions about street cleaning or assistance signing up for text/email notifications, please call/text 847-448-4311. For convenience, residents may simply dial 3-1-1 in Evanston.
