Street Sweeping

Lake Forest Street Sweeping Program

Sweepers removing litter from your neighborhood and commercial areas not only help keep them clean but also prevent grime and pollutants from entering our local creeks, lakes, and the ocean. In order to successfully sweep our streets, we’re asking for your help to move your car on street sweeping day.

UPDATE (Effective July 1, 2020)

Residential street sweeping has changed from weekly to twice per month.  Our contractor will continue weekly street sweeping on arterial roads and the 12 high priority street segments (approved by the City Council), which are:

  • Orange Avenue from Jeronimo Road to Front Street
  • Jeronimo from Orange to Cherry (southside)
  • Front Street from Olive Avenue to Cherry Avenue
  • Olive Avenue from Front Street to Front Street
  • Cherry Avenue from Jeronimo Road to Front Street
  • 2nd Street from El Toro Road to Cherry Avenue and from Los Alisos Boulevard to the end of 2nd Street
  • Montcliff Drive
  • Rimhurst Drive
  • Gowdy Avenue from Golden Eagle Lane to Duryea Drive
  • Farthing Street except for the northside between Jeronimo Road and the end of 25091 Farthing Street
  • Calle Tres Lomas from Cavanaugh Road to Dune Mear Road
  • Highridge Way from Malabar Road to the southerly property line of 19792 Highridge Way

Your Sweep Day

Residential street sweeping occurs twice a month. Click here for the map. On the map, in the upper left corner - type in your address and click on the color coded street in front of your home. 

If a holiday is observed by the City’s franchised waste hauler and/or a City-recognized holiday falls within the Monday to Friday schedule, the regular sweeping schedule shall resume the day following the holiday with the fifth day of sweeping on the Saturday following the holiday.  

How You Can Help

It’s simple! Moving your car on street sweeping day is the most important thing you can do to ensure clean streets. Always obey posted "no parking" or street sweeping schedule signs to avoid tickets or towing.
