Town’s ‘Operation Clean Sweep’ to Commence in North Hempstead

Street Sweepers will clean all Town roads starting April 23


North Hempstead, NY –Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth announced today that starting April 24, North Hempstead’s Highway crews will be hitting Town streets to sweep up the winter debris as the annual “Operation Clean Sweep” gets underway.  This two-week initiative is held each spring and aims to sweep North Hempstead’s roads safe and clean.

“Operation Clean Sweep returns to North Hempstead as street sweepers will take to the roads to clean up all the dirt that has been left behind this winter on our roadways,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “This is especially important with all the debris created from the Nor’easters this winter.” 

The Highway Department needs the public’s help to make Clean Sweep a success.  They ask that residents refrain from parking vehicles on town roads from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. during their designated Operation Clean Sweep days. Businesses are asked to keep their cars off the road from 4 a.m. to 6 a.m.  The public’s cooperation will ensure that the roads are cleaned as thoroughly as possible.

From Monday, April 23 to Friday, April 27, all areas NOT within incorporated villages and south of the Long Island Expressway will be swept. 

From Monday, April 30 to Friday, May 4 all areas NOT within incorporated villages and north of the Long Island Expressway will be swept.
