Alternate Side & Signed Complete Street Sweeping Program
While routine street sweeping takes place throughout the city of Charleston, several downtown neighborhoods participate in the Alternate Side and Signed Complete Street Sweeping Program. Street sweeping is an important function for street maintenance and stormwater infrastructure since debris and litter can clog drains, leading to increased flooding. For the program to be effective, residents must move their cars from one side of the street to the other as indicated by signage, observing street sweeping times.
Ticketing and Towing
Failure to move your car appropriately during street sweeping will result in a $45 ticket. Some neighborhoods also enforce towing.
If your car has been towed, there will be a $130 fee in addition to the $45 ticket. If your vehicle is left overnight at Jenning's Towing, you may incur storage fees.
Jenning's Towing has contracted with the City of Charleston to tow vehicles during street sweeping. Their phone number is 843-554-6385.
