On Thursday April 21, 2022 The City will postpone some previously scheduled residential street sweeping operations due to the recent snow event. Sweeping that was scheduled for the communities of Altadore, The Hamptons (North Portion), Skyview Ranch (East Portion), Bowness (West Portion), Scenic Bow, Thorncliffe (South of 56 Avenue), Greenview North and Fonda will be rescheduled to June 2022.
The City’s Annual Spring Clean-up Program is set to begin next week. Residents may park in the far East lot at the centre overnight if necessary.
Highlights this year:
• Flexibility: Daytime crews will sweep in communities Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Parking bans are in place when signs are present.
• No schedule changes: City crews will not be pre-sweeping in communities. Any delays due to weather, equipment or other issues will only be rescheduled to the end of the program (end of June).
• Avoid parking tickets by planning ahead and moving vehicles: Enforcement will occur this year through partnership with the Calgary Parking Authority. Vehicle owners that have not moved before sweepers are operating in their community may receive a parking tag but there are multiple way to plan ahead and be prepared.
• If debris is left behind because a vehicle or cart has not been moved: Residents can sweep up missed debris. It is recommended to use garbage bags (heavy debris needs to be double-bagged) when cleaning up gravel, dust and rocks. Do not leave debris loose in your black cart.
We are communicating with citizens in a number of ways so that they can get information about when their areas will be swept. The best option is to visit Calgary.ca/sweep to find:
- Address look up tool
- The “RoadBot” Virtual Agent
- Email notifications
- Online map showing progress/schedule
- Program information
Please watch for these signs:
Why we sweep?
