    Department of Public Works begins its annual street sweeping program in April. The program is designed to remove the heavy accumulation of salt, sand and litter that has collected over the winter months and to help keep New Haven’s 226 miles of streets clean.

    The City has 15 sweeping routes; 9 Tag and Tow routes; 6 No Tag and No Tow routes.

    Tag and Tow Routes – Residents must move their cars or get ticketed and towed which is costly. The routes have remained the same for several years and posted signs, phone calls and schedule linked above can be utilized to remind residents each time the sweeping is occurring on their route.

    Notification Reminders If you are already receiving emergency notifications from the City, you will receive a monthly reminder to move your car or be ticketed and towed each time your Tag and Tow route is scheduled to be swept. If you are not opted in to the Emergency Notification System, you can do it by following this link: http://www.cityofnewhaven.com/alerts/index.asp
