Street cleaning begins on April 1, 2015. Mayor Martin J. Walsh reminds residents that Boston's Daytime Neighborhood Street Cleaning Program will officially kick-off citywide for the season on Wednesday, April 1. Street sweeping had been postponed in neighborhoods with March street sweeping due to ice and snow covering gutters. Residents are asked to obey parking restrictions in order to assist with the City's efforts to clean the streets after the snow has begun to melt. Violators who do not move their cars during street sweeping hours will be subject to a $40 ticket and towing. Street Sweeping Schedule Look Up.
