As soon as the roads are dry in early spring, the City begins spring pre-sweeping to remove heavier dirt and debris that gathers over the winter. This includes grassy and concrete boulevards and medians where graded snow was placed. Through April, sweeping crews move quickly through high-traffic streets to collect the bulk of the debris, going around any parked cars to reduce as much as 90% of dust. Watch "Early Spring Street Sweeping" to learn more.
At the beginning of May, a neighbourhood schedule is available and No Parking signs are posted on streets to notify drivers of upcoming curb-to-curb sweeping. At this time, vehicles left on the posted street will get a ticket and be towed to a nearby street. Watch "Your City Street Sweeping" to learn more.
