Street Cleaning Services

The Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation provides street cleaning throughout the island.

Street Cleaning rules are in effect, throughout Main Street (Octagon through Tramway Circle), on Mondays and Thursdays from 10:00am - 11:30 am. In lieu of alternate side of the street parking, we ask that vehicles be moved under the Motorgate ramp during the street cleaning hours.
