Our Rossmoor - A Great Place To Live Since 1957

Rossmoor Street Sweeping Schedule

After more than 10 years of discussions, debates, and delays, the RCSD and our then 2nd District Supervisor Katrina Foley were able to get the County Board of Supervisors to change the Rossmoor street sweeping ordinance to provide for alternate side or odd/even sweeping in Rossmoor in November 2021. The new rules took effect in January of 2022

This revised sweeping schedule allows more flexibility for vehicle parking in the community. 

The primary purpose for sweeping the streets of Rossmoor is to keep debris and pollution out of our oceans. All of our gutter run-off flows unfiltered into the San Gabriel River which then pours into the ocean at Seal Beach.

Moving Vehicles and Waste Carts From Streets is Critical

Unfortunately, for every vehicle parked on the street on our sweeping days, the sweepers have to maneuver the length of two cars to service the road; leaving over 40 feet un-swept.

Help keep our oceans, streets, and storm drains clean by keeping our sweeping services effective; please reference your street’s days of service (map below) and move parked cars and waste carts between the hours of 8:30 am & 4:30 pm on these days.

Simple, Straight Forward Schedule

The new sweeping schedule is fairly simple:

  • 1st & 3rd Mondays ODD addresses get swept
  • 1st & 3rd Tuesdays EVEN addresses get swept

If either day is a holiday, sweeping will occur on the following Wednesday.

 

But What's a Holiday?

There is always some confusion around what is a holiday for sweeping versus a Federal or State holiday.

Our sweeping contractor, Sweeping Corporation of Americas  DOES sweep on both Martin Luther King Day in January and on President’s Day in February.  While both are national holidays, street sweeping WILL occur on both days. Please do not park in front of ODD-addressed homes on either of these days.

When a recognized holiday like July 4th occurs on a Monday or Tuesday, then the sweeping will occur on Wednesday of the same week.

Why Sweep the Streets?

Since street sweeping is designed to help keep pollutants out of our oceans, it’s really in all of our best interest to move our vehicles (and waste carts) from the street so the sweepers have a clear path to do their work. 

Sweeping Schedule

Here’s the 2024 sweeping schedule:

The RHA Calendar has the dates by month adjusted for holidays as well.

What Didn't Change...

And, just in case you need a financial incentive to do the “right thing” OCSD parking enforcement will ticket vehicles parked in the street between 8:30 and 4:30 on sweeping days. This is nothing new, but at least now you have a place to park in Rossmoor.

  1. Is it possible for Orange County Sheriff Volunteer Tickets writer follow the Street Sweeper Truck and write tickets only if vehicle is blocking at the time of the Street Sweeper Truck instead of no parking at all between the hours of 8:30 am – 4:30 pm. People are getting tickets even after the Street Sweeper Truck has cleaned, finished, and left the street. Makes no sense because Seal Beach gives tickets at the time of Street Sweeper Truck vehicle blocking the sweeper from cleaning. Same laws should be in Rossmoor instead of no parking on the side of the street the sweeper is cleaning for 8 hours. Sometimes the Sweeper is completely finished long gone before 4:30 pm in the area but people still are getting tickets even afterward the Sweeper is finished and long gone. Seems a little petty to get a ticket from the sheriff in that instance.

  2. As a Rossmoor homeowner for decades (nothing ‘special’, other than I’ve seen the parking issues for 40+ years), I’ve seen that street sweeping (and other parking) enforcement is a necessity, including the time period. If there’s a better idea I’m open to hearing it.

    You mentioned “North Patrol Deputies”. I have called the Sheriff non-emergency line in the past (never on neighbors). If there was a way to notify the enforcement team on street sweeping days I would use it, but only for repeat issues.

    If there were (temporary) lawn sign street sweeping “reminders” I’d use them. My street has the Seal Beach Townhomes across the street (Bradbury) to the south, and those tenants park here (along with other Rossmoor streets) regularly (jaywalking across Bradbury). I imagine few if any know the street sweeping schedule. If jaywalking across heavily-trafficked Bradbury (and Montecito) was enforced many other affected homeowners would likely see fewer parking/street sweeping issues.

    In the recent Rossmoor traffic survey (raised islands, ‘your speed’ signs, etc) I submitted a suggestion to add “No jaywalking” signs to the (Bradbury) islands, diretly across from the intersecting Rossmoor streets. 2/13/2024
