Operation Clean Sweep



Operation Clean Sweep is coming to Burlington April 26 - May 4, 2023.  


Clean Sweep is vital to Lake health and our health. It keeps nutrient pollution out of the Lake, keeps the roads safer by clearing them of debris and keeps our infrastructure in better shape by limiting flooding from clogged storm drains. We NEED your help this year.


See the map below or click on it to find your Clean Sweep Zone.

Note that "new" Zone H ONLY incorporates the North & East side of Franklin Square in the New North End.




Please watch for the lights to be on in your area. “When the lights are on the cars are gone from 10PM-7AM”. Free Parking is available in the city-owned Marketplace Garage (47 S. Winooski: entrances on Cherry St & Bank St) & Downtown Garage (formerly called College & Lakeview Garage) with entrances on College, Battery and Cherry. Free parking in the garages is from 7PM-9AM.
