Sweep crews will first sweep boulevards and hard surface areas adjacent to roads and move sand and other debris into the path of street sweepers. This helps keep the roadway boulevard green and healthy while removing dead vegetation and accumulated litter.
Residential roads will be swept during the day. Motorists can expect to see peace officers, flashing lights and blocked lanes on high-volume and high-speed roads.
The City has measures in place to minimize dust, but street sweepers can still create dusty conditions that reduce visibility. If you see dust, slow down and drive for conditions. We recommend closing windows and walking on alternative sidewalks. Always give our equipment plenty of space - in front, behind and on both sides.
When crews are scheduled to be in your residential area, please move your vehicles off the street so they can do a thorough job. If you have driveway ramps in front of your home, please remove them so crews have room to complete cleaning in your area. Sweeping schedules will be posted on neighbourhood signs and on this page. Please note that each neighbourhood has a designated week for residential sweeping, but if crews are ahead of schedule, sweeping will start in the next neighbourhood early.
