The Public Works Department is alerting residents in the two neighborhoods now that in many cases there street-sweeping schedules will be changing in April. In a notice to JP residents, the department says:
The goal of the alterations is to provide mechanical street sweeping services to more closely follow your residential trash collection day. Currently, some portions of Jamaica Plain have to wait several days for street sweeping following residential trash and recycling collection. ... This will alleviate much of the litter generated by the weekly residential trash collection in a faster and more efficient manner.
A similar change will affect parts of Dorchester.
