Street Cleaning

I Want To...

Street cleaning is done in Allentown on a year-round basis, in most parts of the city. If unsure about a specific area, check the signs on that block.

Street cleaning is done in many weather conditions. In fact, when it is raining, the street cleaner uses rainwater to pick up debris, rather than using city water. During the winter, street cleaning routes are followed to remove snow, etc. For daily updates on street cleaning operations, you call the city’s Street Cleaning Hotline at (610) 437-7636.

If you receive two or more street cleaning tickets within a 30-day period, it is considered a “repeat offender” and the fine begins at $50.
