The pilot program began on March 1st, 2021 and uses new signage to make sure that vehicles are moved so that the streets can be properly cleaned. There are four residential neighborhoods in the pilot. City and/or Milpitas Sanitation Inc. (MSI) staff may be seen in your neighborhood collecting data during the pilot to gauge the progress of the program.
This pilot is focused on improving the effectiveness of street cleaning by getting the street sweepers more access to the street and curb. Signs will be installed to let you know when cars should be moved. Be sure to check signs for specific street schedules as different sides of the street will be swept on different weeks.
You can participate and help by moving your vehicle! It’s that easy! No parking anytime during sweeping times (10am – 12pm) during applicable days, even if the street sweeper has come through. Check your street sign for the applicable day.
Help us keep your neighborhood clean and litter free!
The goal of the neighborhood selection was to get a good mix and representation of the different residential areas within the City. The neighborhoods were chosen based on several factors, including:
- Composition of neighborhood
- Proximity to commercial areas
- Location to schools
- Street size
- Impacts in the City’s trash load reduction plan
- Input from MSI
