The City of Brea provides street sweeping twice a month in both residential and commercial areas. The goal of the Street Sweeping program is to maintain the safety and cleanliness of City streets by minimizing the accumulation of debris in roadways and along curbs. Sweeping also significantly reduces pollution.
As of March 1, 2019, the City of Brea began a "pilot" program to sweep streets twice per month.Previously, streets were swept on a weekly basis.
Depending on location, streets will be swept on either:
- The first and third weeks of the month
- The second and forth weeks of the month
Reference maps indicating the sweeping day for various neighborhoods can be viewed below.The following maps highlight various neighborhoods within the city. The maps separate Brea into two sections: East and West of the 57 Orange Freeway. See times and locations where sweeping occurs on various days of the week.

Parking During Sweeping Hours
Sweeping occurs between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m in residential tracts. Signs are posted at the entrances into various neighborhoods indicating the day of the week on which sweeping is scheduled.
At the January 15, 2019 Brea City Council Meeting, parking enforcement was suspended for Brea's Street Sweeping Program for an evaluation period. Drivers will no longer be cited for parking on the streets during Street Sweeper Operation. To facilitate effective sweeping, residents are encouraged to remove their parked vehicles during the street sweeping operation, even those displaying overnight parking permits. By keeping vehicles off the street voluntarily, you can help Brea streets stay clean and safe.
The suspension of Street Sweeping Parking Enforcement has NO effect on the City's Overnight Parking Ordinance. Street parking in Brea is still prohibited between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. Citations will be written for violation of the ordinance. If you meet certain criteria, you may be granted an Overnight Parking Permit.
Cooperation is appreciated in the effort to enhance neighborhood cleanliness. For questions, call 714 990-7691.
