The DC Department of Public Works (DPW) has launched a new MyDPW mobile app that delivers customized schedules, reminders and alerts about street sweeping, leaf collection and tow and boot services.
Be notified about when to move your vehicles ahead of weekly residential street sweeping. The app is currently designed for residents who frequently park on residential streets, allowing them to select the blocks they would like to receive alerts about, and providing access to the posted schedules for selected blocks right on their phones.
In addition to alerts about street sweeping, the mobile app allows residents to sign up for DPW’s existing booting/towing and leaf collection alerts. Residents who have already signed up to receive these alerts will not need to re-register and just use their existing login, and signing up for a new account takes less than 5 minutes.
Sign up today and know when to expect DPW in your neighborhood. Receive important service alerts and reminders anytime, anywhere.

Exactly what you’d think
It gives you a street by street breakdown of the street sweeping schedule. It can send you reminders about the schedule. And if you enter your car info, it can let you know if and where you get towed due to street sweeping.
It could look a bit cleaner, which is why it didn’t get 5 stars, but I don’t get these low reviews.
Glorified spreadsheet - did somebody really get paid to make this?
The street sweeping info tells you only what's already on the signs on the streets. Nothing more. Is this a joke? (That's a serious question)
Why doesn't it tell us which actual streets are getting cleaned when? Better yet, design the app to tell me when the street by my house is actually getting cleaned. Certainly all streets are not cleaned every week, right?
I want my tax dollars returned for this app if it stays in it's current form.
Not much info
It's fine, but it doesn't tell you which side of the street is off-limits—pretty critical information. You might as well just put an alert on your own calendar.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
