For 2019, neighbourhood street sweeping will begin in north Lethbridge, then move to south Lethbridge and finish in west Lethbridge. Neighbourhood street sweeping is scheduled so that it doesn't conflict with front pick-up garbage collection days.
A second street sweeping crew works Sunday through Thursday evenings responding to complaints. Crews also work in the Industrial Park after 10 p.m. and the downtown area on Sunday nights. In addition, night crews will be sweeping arterial roads in non-residential areas Monday to Friday between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m.
Reminder: all street sweeping dates are subject to change due to weather or mechanical issues.
North Lethbridge - Complete
Street sweeping in residential neighbourhoods starts in late April and continues until completion, typically by late June or early July. To help crews do a thorough cleanup, we need residents to move their vehicles from streets scheduled for cleaning, and we'll notify you in advance several ways:
- A door hanger will also arrive at your home about a week before sweepers will be in your neighbourhood.
- Reminder cards will be placed on windshields of vehicles parked on the street the evening before.
Temporary NO PARKING signs are posted in a specific neighbourhood the day before street sweepers arrive. Once a sign is placed, the temporary NO PARKING zone will be in effect from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. the following day. After crews have completed sweeping in a neighbourhood, tickets will be issued to vehicles that were not moved. Street sweeping signs are moved shortly after sweepers leave a specific area so NO PARKING signs may no longer be visible after tickets are handed out.
The fine for parking in a temporary No Parking zone is $30 under the City's Traffic Bylaw.
Street sweeping is subject to weather conditions and will be delayed by rain. Additional information about this program can be found by online
, or by calling 311 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., weekdays (except holidays).
