What should I do when I see street sweeping signs posted in my area?

Signage is posted a minimum of 24 hours in advance of crews starting street sweeping.

There are a few things you can do to help sweepers pick up the most materials possible when they are in your area:

  • Remove all obstacles from the roadway such as driveway ramps, toys, basketball hoops etc. to allow the street sweeper to get as close as possible to the curb.
  • Please ensure all vehicles, including trailers and RV’s, are moved from the street for the week your street is scheduled.

Keep in mind, if you do not move your vehicle, the street sweepers will go around your vehicle. 

During final inspection at the end of the week – any areas not completed due to unmoved vehicles or other obstacles will not swept.

If the vehicle is not moved by the end of the week, you may be ticketed ($75 fine) - as per Bylaw 011-13.
