Edmonton brushes in spring with annual street sweeping 
April 1, 2021

The City of Edmonton will start citywide street sweeping on April 6, weather permitting. 

“We remind Edmontonians to help do their part by removing their vehicles and providing our crews plenty of room to work,” said Andrew Grant, General Supervisor for Infrastructure Field Operations. “We ask that they watch for signage in their neighbourhoods to know when crews will be on their streets. This ensures our crews are able to deliver a high level of service and clear streets quickly and efficiently.”  

Street sweeping will run Monday to Friday, 24 hours a day. The City’s sweeping process is as efficient and non-disruptive as possible. Parks crews will sweep boulevards and push debris onto roads. Road crews will sweep up debris on residential roads during the day and on high-volume roads during the night. Motorists can expect to see peace officers, flashing lights and blocked lanes on high-volume and high-speed roads. 

Residents can support the spring sweep program by moving their vehicles when crews are in their neighbourhood. Vehicles left on neighbourhood roads may receive a courtesy tow to a nearby road but will not be ticketed. In areas where there are too many vehicles parked on the road, crews will bypass that area.

Sweeping schedules will be posted on neighbourhood signs and on edmonton.ca/streetsweeping. Schedules will be updated regularly throughout the next seven to eight weeks. While each neighbourhood has a designated week for residential sweeping, residents may see crews early if they are ahead of schedule.
