Public streets in Lake Forest are swept once a week by R.F. Dickson Co., Inc. Sweeping day in your neighborhood occurs on the day after your trash is collected. If your trash is collected on a Friday, your street is swept on Monday. If you live on a private street, contact your homeowner’s association to obtain your street sweeping schedule.
The street sweeper may not have swept in front of your house for several reasons: 1) A parked car was blocking the area. Street sweepers take up to two car lengths, before and after parked vehicles, to swing out and around a parked car and resume sweeping the gutter line. 2) It is an observed holiday and the sweeping has been delayed by one day. Typically, if your regular sweeping day is during the week, Monday - Thursday, the sweeping will be delayed by one day. If your seeping day is Friday, expect your street to be swept on the following Monday. 3) Heavy rain or wind necessitated the cancellation of the street sweeping for the day. Your street will be swept on the following week.
