STREET SWEEPING & ENFORCEMENT
The Street Sweeping program was established in response to Federal and State Clean Water regulations to remove debris from the streets and gutters before it can enter the storm drain system. These regulations were created to provide pollution control and to reduce the flow of urban runoff entering our waterways and ocean.
Parking control provides motivation for residents to move their vehicles, which allows for more efficient sweeping and more thorough debris removal. On a weekly basis, the city's street sweepers collect nearly 70 tons of rubbish from over 1,121+ miles of streets and gutters.
All public arterial and residential streets will be swept twice per month.
For a permit to excuse parking for street sweeping for vehicles related to Building Permit work, please contact the Public Works front counter at 714-536-5431.
If you received a parking citation due to street sweeping and would like more information, please call (800) 565-0148. Those who wish to contest a citation must do so within 21 days of ticket issuance by visiting http://www.pticket.com/.

The City of Huntington Beach has partnered with Allied Universal Security Services to perform the function of street sweeping enforcement. This partnership will be managed by the Police Department. If you have service related questions pertaining to this partner, please call (714) 536-5663 and leave a message.
If there is a vehicle in violation of our local street sweeping ordinance, a citation in the amount of $46 will be issued and placed on the windshield. Citations will be issued only when a vehicle is parked on the street at the time of sweeping. This means that vehicles may be returned to the street as soon as the sweeper and parking control/enforcement officer(s) have passed the parking location.
