Neighborhood Clean Sweep
It's Clean Sweep time in the neighborhood. Notice the dirth of cars parked on the street? About eight minutes after I took this photo, the tow trucks would begin to clear the streets of cars not yet moved by their owners.
To facilitate the pick-up of the leaves, this water truck sprayed the streets. I took these photos while I waited for the #17 bus last Friday.
The neighborhood is divided into four parts which means the whole thing takes place on four different Fridays.
Here are two photos I took on Everett west of the photos above and at an earlier Clean Sweep this year.
These signs are put out in each area on the Wednesday before the scheduled clean sweep. Also at least twice a year a brochure comes in the mail.
