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 July 11 – 15. 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, July 11 and Tuesday, June 12: residential areas south of Broad St.
- Wednesday, July 13: commercial areas and municipal parking areas
- Thursday, July 14 and Friday, July 15: 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.
