Residential side streets with multiple alternate side parking days across the five boroughs will continue to be cleaned once per week for another two weeks, through Sept. 19, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Friday.
Amended rules pertain to residential “side streets” and not to commercial areas, City Department of Transportation officials noted. Streets with multiple ASP days would be cleaned on the last day of the week, as posted on each street’s currently posted sign. For example, a street with ASP regulations posted on Tuesday and Friday will be cleaned on Friday only. Daily sweeping regulations in metered areas will not change, and DSNY will continue cleaning streets with posted No Standing, No Stopping and No Parking regulations as needed.
In June, de Blasio and former Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia unveiled the reform, touting it as the most dramatic change to ASP since 2000, when the City reduced the duration of sweeping windows from three hours to 90 minutes.
