About the Department of Public Works

The recent consolidation of the former departments of Public Service and Parks, Recreation & Properties in order to form the Department of Public Works improves service, efficiency, and reduces redundancy through the sharing of equipment and personnel.

This is the City’s 3rd largest department with over 1,100 dedicated employees serving Cleveland.

Public Works is responsible for core services. Annually the department picks up approximately 156,000 tons of waste, uses 70,000 tons of salt for snow, paints over 7,000 crosswalks, and provides over 49,000 vacant property service visits. The department also maintains city parks and parking lots, and provides leisure opportunities to residents.

The department's goals are threefold:

  • Provide consistent, quality service; maintain clean neighborhoods and safe streets and sidewalks for pedestrians, motorists, and visitors.
  • Use a sustainable and proactive approach to provide services and recreational activities in order to maintain quality of life for Cleveland residents and visitors.
  • Operate and maintain clean, accessible, vibrant public space for exploration, relaxation, and exercise, while connecting culturally diverse venues of sports, entertainment, and educational experiences.
