Street cleaning

The task of street cleaning is the mechanical and manual cleaning of streets and squares as well as the emptying of outdoor litter bins in the city area. The services are provided on behalf of the City of Jena and also commercially.


Cleaning frequency

Cleaning is carried out between once and seven times a week. The cleaning frequency depends on the classification of the streets in the corresponding cleaning classes of the valid street cleaning statutes of the City of Jena.

Cleaning classes

The streets are divided into cleaning classes according to their traffic importance and the cleaning work required.
This indicates the frequency of cleaning. The cleaning class is specified in the list of streets (Appendix I) of the street cleaning statutes.

For streets that are not cleaned by the City of Jena, the owner of the adjacent property is obliged to clean along their property up to the middle of the street.

You can find the street cleaning plan in the street directory of the street cleaning statutes under Downloads. If your street is not listed, it may be because your street is not listed in the directory.

Street cleaning fee

The City of Jena charges fees for the cleaning of public traffic facilities on the basis of the street cleaning statutes and street cleaning fee statutes.


The fees for the determined frontage length per meter and year are as follows

  • in cleaning class 1 € 2.76
  • in cleaning class 2 € 4.80
  • in cleaning class 3 € 6.60
  • in cleaning class 5 € 15.36
  • in cleaning class 6 € 16.20
  • in cleaning class 7 € 16.56

Scale for the fee and assessment basis

The scale is the front length of the property side or facing property sides along the street through which the developed and undeveloped property is accessed and the assigned cleaning class (Street Cleaning Statutes Annex I - Street List).

Front meter scale

In accordance with the function of the front meter scale as a specific type of cost allocation, it has nothing to do with a specific sweeping route in the locality. The charge does not relate to the cleaning of the part of the street in front of the respective property, but to the cleaning of the entire street providing access to the property (property-related user charge).

The following are examples for determining the frontage length (click to enlarge)
