York City crews will be conducting street cleaning Tuesday, May 8.

A Clean Sweep will be conducted in a portion of York City, but there will be no parking restrictions.

The York City Civil Enforcement Unit will conduct the street cleaning Tuesday, May 8, in the area bordered by Philadelphia Street on the south, North Street on the north, Queen Street on the west and Broad Street on the east, according to a news release.

The Department of Public Works will be shutting the area down one block at a time to allow the street sweeper to operate.

Clean Sweeps are a concentrated enforcement and cleanup effort that address quality of life and property maintenance issues as well as remove trash and litter. Property maintenance inspectors will inspect the area to address quality of life and life safety violations of the codes while the Department of Public Works clears trash and debris from the sidewalks and street, according to the release.

Residents are reminded that the Clean Sweep is not a large item pickup event, and such items must be scheduled for pickup through the large item line at 717-843-1240. 

Any unscheduled items will result in a Neighborhood Improvement Ordinance ticket being issued.

Residents are encouraged to participate by sweeping any trash and litter to the curb line in front of their property.
