Street Sweeping

From April to November, we sweep streets on a scheduled and as-needed basis. After the initial spring sweep, our crews routinely sweep streets and curbs to remove debris, including prioritize cycling lanes to keep them clear. We also respond to reports of sand, gravel, broken glass, and other debris as required. Late fall and early winter Public Works complete a leaf and debris sweep.  

Spring street sweeping

Spring cleanup takes about seven weeks to thoroughly clear debris and winter sand buildup. Our crews work around the clock, from Monday to Friday, until all streets are clean. 

Spring sweeping order: 

    1. Cycling lanes and main streets 
    2. Transit routes and collector streets 
    3. Residential streets 
    4. Rural areas 

We appreciate your patience during our spring street sweeping program.
