As soon as the roads are dry in early spring, the City begins a spring sweeping blitz to remove heavier dirt and debris that gathers over the winter. Beginning in April, yellow No Parking signs are posted on scheduled priority streets to notify drivers of upcoming curb-to-curb sweeping through neighbourhoods. In mid-October, street sweeping occurs in select neighbourhoods to reduce the potential for spring flooding.

How you can help us

- Watch for slow moving sweeping equipment on the road and stay back for everyone's safety.
- Report locations where residents have illegally pushed excessive leaves onto the street to the Bylaw Inspector at 306-975-3193. City Bylaw Inspectors will investigate and violators may receive a fine.

More About Street Sweeping
How will I be notified of my street sweeping date?
Bright yellow ‘No Parking’ signs will be posted in neighbourhoods 36-48 hours in advance of sweeping. Refer to the Street Sweeping schedule on this page for a full schedule.
What could cause a street to be missed by street sweepers?
- Some neighbourhoods are swept over two or three days to leave streets open for alternate parking, i.e. Streets one day and Avenues another day.
- Two neighbourhoods have partial sweeping: Exhibition includes only west of Herman Avenue; Varsity View includes only north of 14th Street.
- Street sweeping may have a delayed start time, be cancelled or end early if there is heavy rain. Street Sweeping Service Alerts will be issued if there is a change to the schedule and signs will be removed to indicate street sweepers will not return on that date.
- If you feel your street was missed by accident, please call the 24-Hour Customer Service Centre at 306-975-2476.
My vehicle was towed for street sweeping. Where is it?
Vehicles remaining on a street posted for street sweeping may be ticketed and relocated to a nearby street. If your vehicle is moved, visit Find My Vehicle! for its location or call our 24-Hour Customer Service Centre at 306-975-2476.
Who can I contact if I see someone vandalizing or taking a No Parking sign? Or if I find a sign?
Our staff wear City of Saskatoon high-visibility vests when they update dates and reposition signs.
Street sweeping is scheduled for the same day as my Black Garbage, Blue Recycling or Green Cart collection. Can I still put my cart on the street for collection?
If you are a Green Cart subscriber, your collection day may occur on your neighbourhood sweeping day. Please place your cart on the street as instructed and City staff will move it out of the way for sweeping and return it for collection. The schedule is designed to work around the black garbage and blue recycling cart collection, which are city-wide programs.
Will the City be cleaning leaves and debris off sidewalks?
The City cleans sidewalks on major roadways, and asks that you remove leaves and debris from your sidewalks and driveways. Please do not push leaves from your sidewalk, boulevard and yard onto the street. City Bylaws prohibit doing so and violators may receive a warning or a fine.
How do I dispute a parking ticket?
Please contact a Customer Service Representative to discuss options at 306-975-2400 or on the main floor of City Hall at 222 Third Avenue South.
