UPDATED: 2022 Street Sweeper Season Starts Monday

Update on 5/3: Please note two changes to the previously published schedule. Hampton Street has been moved Tuesdays, 8 a.m.-12 p.m. Nathan Street has been moved to Wednesdays, 5 a.m.-8 a.m. The corrected schedule is available here.


The 2022 street-sweeping season begins Monday, May 2. Starting May 23, Elkins police will ticket vehicles left parked on streets scheduled for street sweeping.

To reduce strain on the wastewater treatment plant and to maintain a visually attractive streetscape, the City of Elkins operates a street sweeper from late spring through early fall. Each year’s start and end dates are announced on this website, on the city’s Facebook page, and in local media outlets.

Elkins sweeps streets Monday-Friday during the spring, summer, and fall, visiting each street once per week. During the street sweeper’s operating season, city police will ticket vehicles left parked on streets scheduled for street sweeping. Please download and review the 2022 Street Sweeper Schedule to learn when you will need to move your car. You can also access an interactive map here. (Although the map is dated 2021, the street sweeper’s routes and schedule has not changed since then.)

Notification of cancelled street-sweeper runs will be issued when possible. However, when the sweeper route is cut short due to mechanical problems, inclement weather, operator emergencies, or other factors beyond our control, it is not always possible to issue such notifications. The best practice is establish a routine of  moving vehicles on the appointed day and continue that practice weekly until the end of sweeper season.

Contact the Operations Department’s administrative assistant with any questions.
