Street Sweeping

Service Information

The City of Placentia contracts with R.F. Dickson Co., Inc. for street sweeping services.  This service strives to ensure that all City arterial, residential, industrial, and alley roadways are kept clean.  Maintaining clean streets keeps the City of Placentia beautiful and complies with the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) and National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) requirements.

Please keep the following guidelines in mind for street sweeping service:

  • Please move all vehicles off the street during the times/days posted for street sweeping.
  • Please ensure all trash containers and recreational items such as basketball hoops are removed from the gutter area on your service day.
  • Don’t rake or blow leaves/grass into the gutter or streets. Instead, place them inside of your automated green waste container to be picked up on your scheduled collection day.

Street parking is prohibited during the days and times identified on the street sweeping sign posted at the main entrance(s) to each development and/or street. The “No Parking Zone” is enforceable during the block of time identified on the posted sign, regardless of the location of the street sweeper on the scheduled route. Vehicles parked on the street during those days and between the posted hours will be cited under Placentia Municipal Code, Chapter 13.48.220. For residents who wish to contest their citations, please follow the instructions located on the back of the citation ticket. For questions or inquiries regarding street sweeping citations, please call the Placentia Police Department at (714) 993-8164.
