The City of Falls Church government asked residents in a recent press release to move vehicles off the streets for street sweeping, which is scheduled for June 13 – 17. Vehicle owners only need to move their vehicles off of the streets on the day their area is scheduled for street sweeping between 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Doing so helps crews do a more efficient and effective job of preventing 200-250 tons of debris from entering our local waterways. The June street sweeping, which is scheduled to change in the case of inclement weather, is as follows:
- Monday, June 13 and Tuesday, June 14: residential areas south of Broad St.
- Wednesday, June 15 commercial areas and municipal parking areas
- Thursday, June 16 and Friday, June 17: residential areas north of Broad St.
Street sweeping reduces the volume of pollutants entering local streams through the City’s 900 storm drain openings. Each cycle of street sweeping collects between 40 and 50 tons of debris from City streets and keeps it out of our streams. The materials intercepted include heavy metals, trash and general sediment.
