The City has issued following guidelines regarding this year’s street cleaning program, and encourages the public to share this information through word of mouth and on social media:

  • Residents should review the full Spring Cleanup schedule to determine when their street will be cleaned. The schedule has been published and is available on the website at www.troyny.gov.
  • Vehicles should be parked in accordance with regularly posted alternate-side parking restrictions so that DPW staff can clean the entire street surface area.
  • During posted cleanup days, any illegally-parked vehicles will be towed at the owner’s expense. All streets that will be part of that day’s cleanup will be posted for “No Parking.” Please notify DPW at (518) 270-4579 in advance if you know of any abandoned, unregistered or inoperative vehicles in your neighborhood.
  • Property owners are encouraged to sweep or wash sidewalks adjacent to their properties and rake their lawns before sweepers arrive to clean their street. This will improve the effectiveness of street cleaning operations. Please sweep dirt along the curbs and out of the gutters into small piles to help make pick up easier.
  • Residents are asked to place weeds, brush and other materials in a biodegradable (paper) bag or bundle the brush and branches together for easier collection. Please note: Brush (cuttings from trees and large shrubs) cannot be disposed of using yard waste bags, Please trim them to 4-5’ in length and place with other oversize branches directly on the edge of your sidewalk or alley.
  • Please do not obstruct the sidewalk when placing items curbside. Please keep sidewalks and curb ramps adjacent to your property free of obstacles to help keep your community accessible to people of all ages and abilities.
  • Weekly garbage collection will occur as scheduled for properties which normally receive city services.
