Bristol Township's 2015 Street Sweeping Program
Street sweeping begins on Monday, April 6, 2015. Help us do a better job on street sweeping day. Please do not rake yard waste such as branches, twigs or leaves into the roadway or along your curbs. Also, please do not park your vehicles on the roadway during the estimated sweeping week for your section. An effective street sweeping program is important, because a clean swept street means a more attractive neighborhood. Also, removing debris from curbs and roadways means less debris and pollution goes down storm drains and into Township waterways. Thank you for your help in making the 2015 street sweeping program a success. Please call the Public Works Department at (267) 812-2922 for more information.
