Street Cleaning Rules and Information

The City of Evanston's street cleaning season runs from March 1 through December 15. Residents are asked to abide by the street cleaning schedule found on existing street signs.

Parking is prohibited only on the sides and dates indicated on the street signs and on the schedule. Some zones may include business districts that are posted with signs indicating they are swept between 4 a.m. and 7 a.m. The downtown area is cleaned on Mondays between the hours of 4 a.m. and 7 a.m. Parking will be prohibited as indicated and residents are reminded to always check the street signs before parking their cars.

No Parking

Illegally parked cars in One-sided Street Cleaning areas may be subject to a ticket and towing charge. For all other street cleaning areas, only tickets will be issued. The ticket for violating the street cleaning ordinance is $35. After 10 days, it increases to $65. If the vehicle is towed, then there will also be a tow charge of  $145 plus storage charges when the resident picks up his or her vehicle from North Shore Towing. The City of Evanston may, from time to time, post parking restrictions for a special street cleaning in limited areas of the city. The ticket and towing laws apply to these special postings as well.
