The City’s Spring Clean-up program, or street sweeping, removes debris and leftover materials from winter on the roadway. The program begins in mid-April (weather permitting) and runs through June, with community sweeping happening Monday through Fridays, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Calgarians can stay notified by watching for signs in their community, using the address lookup, or signing up for e-mail and/or text notifications.

The City’s street sweeping program cleans over 16,000 lane kilometres of paved roads. Here’s what you can do to help:

  • Watch for signs in your community, use the address lookup or sign-up for e-mail/text notifications.
  • On your sweeping day, move your car. Driveways, garages and alleyways are great alternatives (be sure to leave enough clearance).
  • If you have front street collection on your sweeping date, keep your bin off the road. Other locations include grassy boulevards and your lawn. Please don’t block the sidewalk.
  • Be sure to remove any non-standard, prohibited driveway ramps from the curb and gutter of a road that provides access to a front driveway onto private property. Please ensure any other obstructions, such as basketball nets, are also removed from the roadway.
