*Burlington, VT*– Operation Clean Sweep is coming to Burlington April 29 
– May 8 2020.

Street sweeping is vital to Lake health and our health. Sweeping picks 
up sediment and leafy debris which contains phosphorus and prevents it 
from entering the Lake where it can fuel cyanobacteria blooms. This also 
keeps the roads safer by clearing them of debris and protects homes and 
infrastructure by limiting flooding from clogged storm drains. In these 
times, access to a clean Lake Champlain is vital for the community. 
Burlington has a strong tradition of reducing the city's footprint on 
Lake Champlain and with actions like Clean Sweep, that trend will 
continue. While the City has resumed normal sweeping operations, Clean 
Sweep is a full citywide effort to clean up.

*Partnering with the Community*

Due to the ongoing response to COVID-19, the City will not be ticketing 
or towing, but the community is still required to move cars off the road 
so that sweeping can be done as effectively as possible. Public Works 
will be sweeping between 10PM-7AM and asks that you move your cars off 
the street, to another zone if nearby or a City garage (currently free).

It is also important to note that residents should not sweep debris out 
onto the street during Clean Sweep or any other time as this can be 
dangerous for cyclists or pedestrians. The City also asks that you move 
any basketball hoops, or other property, out of the street and off of 
the greenbelt.
