Help us make a clean sweep by moving your vehicle

The City of Calgary announces residential street sweeping to start on Monday, April 15 


 

It’s street sweeping season as The City’s annual residential Spring Clean-up program is set to begin on Monday, April 15. Starting as early as today, those in the first scheduled communities will see signs go up indicating their sweeping date. Residential street sweeping runs Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

 

Calgarians can also find their scheduled sweeping date by visiting calgary.ca/sweep, where they can use our address lookup. We also encourage all Calgarians to sign up for e-mail and text notification reminders.

 

 “Spring clean-up helps reduce debris from entering our waterways, and keeps our neighbourhoods safe and clean for everyone,” says Adam Pawlak, Leader of Planning and Operations for Mobility. “The success of the program is a collaboration between The City and Calgarians. Watch for signs that will go out in your community prior to sweeping, or you can contact 3-1-1 or choose to sign up for e-mail and text notifications at Calgary.ca/sweep.”

 

“We thank you for removing vehicles off the street during the parking ban to help us complete this important work. It’s also a good time to remind property owners that if you have front collection on sweeping day you should place your black, green and blue carts on your lawn or the grassy boulevard.”

 

Calgary Parking also plays a key role in ensuring the program is a success. Camera equipped cars help enforce temporary sweeping bans, but parking officers also validate these bans by verifying community signage is accurate and visible to residents ahead of time.

 

“A good reminder to avoid a ticket is keep your vehicle off the road for the duration of the ban, as street sweepers will make multiple passes,” says Todd Sullivan, Leader, Parking Patrol and Investigation at Calgary Parking. “We coordinate our enforcement with Mobility to ensure our camera cars and sweepers are working as closely as possible.“

 

Residential street sweeping is expected to continue through June 2024. The City recommends back lanes (ensure adequate clearance remains), driveways and garages as alternate locations for parking. For more information, visit calgary.ca/sweep.
