Streetscape maintenance

Council has a team of staff who maintain our streets on a full time basis, delivering verge mowing, street sweeping and high-pressure cleaning services to the community. To see when your verge will be mowed next, use our verge mowing tool.

Streetscape maintenance cycles

Council maintains our streets with a combination of staff and contractors. At the Council meeting on 10 May 2022, new harmonised service standards for the Inner West were adopted. The new standards are as follows:

  • Street sweeping of main streets is undertaken seven days per week
  • Street sweeping of residential streets is undertaken on a 40 working day cycle
  • Verge maintenance (mowing) is undertaken on a 20 working day cycle from October to March, and a 40 working day cycle from April to September.
  • Main street high-pressure cleaning is undertaken on a 3 month cycle. 

If you have a streetscape related issue, please contact Council using the online request management system at the button links below.
