The City of Ankeny has two street sweepers that clean the City’s 472 lane miles of streets and 325 cul-de-sacs. The frequency of street sweeping is based upon the level of traffic on the street. The primary season for the street sweeping is between March and December. The City’s arterial and collector streets are swept on a monthly basis in the spring and fall. During the summer the streets are scheduled for sweeping approximately every six weeks. The residential streets are scheduled for sweeping approximately every 6-8 weeks throughout the year.
The post winter cleanup occurs in the early spring. During this cleanup, the residential streets are swept several times to clean off the accumulation of debris from the winter months. The streets where construction is occurring may receive extra attention and will be swept on an as needed basis. For unusual circumstances such as broken glass, please report it online.
