Our street sweeper cleans about 163 miles of street each month in the City of Schertz. In order to maintain all of the roadways, the sweepers follow a regular monthly schedule. To ensure the sweepers make all of the rounds, the City asks that residents do not dump, push, sweep, or blow yard waste- including leaves, tree limbs, or brush- into City streets or right of ways.
Street Preservation and Maintenance
The City of Schertz began a Street Preservation and Maintenance program (SPAM) after the 2016 MicroPAVER Roadway Assessment Report of the City’s Street Infrastructure. This report helped kick-off the Public Works Street Department Crack Seal and Pavement Preservation Program. The MicroPAVER report listed streets needing Maintenance and Rehabilitation, e.g. Crack Sealing (CS), Slurry Seal (SS), or Bituminous Surface Treatment. An overview of the Streets Department Pavement Preservation and Maintenance Program can be found below:
