Street Sweeping (714) 960-8861

Welcome to the

Public Works Department

for the

City of Huntington Beach!


The Street Sweeping program was established in response to Federal and State Clean Water regulations, which were created to provide pollution control and to reduce the flow of urban runoff entering our storm drains, 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 the streets and gutters.

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.

For more information about the Street Sweeping program or your neighborhood's street sweeping schedule, contact Maintenance Operations at 714-960-8861.

If you received a parking citation due to street sweeping and would like more information, please call (800) 989-2058.
