Alexandria, USA – September 25th, 2014 /PressCable/

Atlantic Sweeping & Cleaning, professional street sweeping company that serves The Department of Public Works announced the suspension of street sweeping for the blocks in the northern half of the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The suspension will extend through October 31st, the end of the scheduled street sweeping season. The street sweeping is being suspended to allow for the construction of DC Water's First Street Tunnel. During this time Bloomingdale neighborhood will not receive street sweeping services, and no parking tickets will be issued to vehicles parked on the streets during posted no-parking days. For residents, the announcement of suspended services has benefits and drawbacks. Heavily populated areas, such as Bloomingdale, find garbage and road debris quickly accumulate when cleaning service is suspended. Many local residents are concerned about discarded trash and liquor bottles near corner stores, as companies like Atlantic Sweeping & Cleaning, Inc. play an integral role in keeping city roads clean.

Yet while some local homeowners are concerned about trash in streets and yards, others are happy to see parking restrictions lifted. Prior to the suspension, residents who commuted regularly struggled to find free parking. The street sweeping ban means residents have freedom to park anywhere a spot is available, and some are grateful for unrestricted city street parking.

For unaffected neighborhood blocks, street sweeping season ends October 31, 2014. Until that time, parking restrictions will continue to be enforced on these streets, and violators will be ticketed. Companies like Atlantic Sweeping & Cleaning, Inc. will continue working to keep city streets clean and safe for the remainder of street sweeping season.
