Annual neighbourhood street sweeping is complete for 2017!
Over the next few weeks, residents may occasionally see street sweepers out responding to service requests, but they will be doing so without the need for temporary parking bans. As a result, there will be no need for residents to move vehicles, as there was during the recently completed sweeping program.
City of Lethbridge Transportation staff wish to thank all residents who made annual neighbourhood street sweeping more efficient and thorough this year by heeding advance notices and signage and moving their vehicles off the street before sweepers arrived. The annual neighbourhood street sweeping program was completed on June 22.
Street sweeping in residential neighbourhoods started on Monday, April 10, 2017.
Each spring, our street sweeping crews clean thousands of tonnes of sand, dust and debris from about 540 kilometres of city roads. The section of the city where sweeping starts rotates annually, so that every year we begin sweeping in a different area of the City.
For 2017, neighbourhood street sweeping will begin in north Lethbridge, then move to west Lethbridge and finish in south Lethbridge. Neighbourhood street sweeping is scheduled so that it doesn't conflict with front pick-up garbage collection days.
To help crews do a thorough cleanup, we need residents to move their vehicles off 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.
- The evening before sweepers arrive, "NO PARKING" signs will be posted and reminder cards will be placed on windshields of vehicles parked on the street.
Please Note: Vehicles still parked on the street the morning after the "NO PARKING" signs have been placed will be ticketed. The fine is $30 under the City of Lethbridge Traffic Bylaw.
On the day that sweepers come to your street, please park elsewhere between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
Please note that street sweeping is subject to weather conditions and will be delayed by rain. Additional information can be found by

Typically neighbourhood street sweeping occurs Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. This is the time of day when temporary "NO PARKING" signs are posted and ticketing is in effect. 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.
