Street sweeping is weather dependent.

There will be scheduled street sweeping in your neighborhood but we're going paperless - no paper door hangers, windshield wiper notices and no parking tickets for not moving your vehicle! What does this mean? 

You can now sign up for a street sweeping notification (email, text or automated phone call). By signing up for this notification, you can receive a notice before street sweepers come to your neighborhood.

Temporary NO PARKING signs are posted in a specific neighbourhood the day before to notify residents of street sweeping the following day.

For 2020 only, we will not ticket vehicles that are not moved from the street. Sweepers will work around vehicles parked on the street but they will not return to your area.

This year we started in south Lethbridge in late April and continued to west Lethbridge then north Lethbridge until completion, typically by late June or early July.

 

Roads we don't sweep

Crowsnest Trail (Highway 3), 43rd Street South from Crowsnest Trail to 24 Avenue South, and Highway 4 east of 43rd Street are Provincial highways that are the responsibility of Alberta Transportation and are maintained by Volker Stevin Contracting Ltd.

Will the City clean sand and debris off sidewalks?

The City cleans sanding materials off sidewalks and boulevards on major roads. You can help keep our city looking beautiful by sweeping sanding materials off residential sidewalks onto the street before the arrival of street sweepers. 

About our street sweeping program

Each year, City of Lethbridge street sweeping crews clean thousands of tonnes of sand and debris from about 540 kilometres of city roads. This helps to prevent that material from being washed into the Oldman River via our storm sewer system. It also reduces airborne dust in neighbourhoods and makes the streets safer for cycling, walking, and driving.

Every public road in the city is swept each year. Spring street sweeping typically takes up to 10 weeks to complete.

We begin with downtown streets and major arterial roads, and then move into the residential and industrial areas. 

Arterial roads without on-street parking and roads in industrial areas are swept at night between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. to avoid impeding traffic during busier daytime hours. 

Each year we rotate which side of the city we start on for residential street sweeping. Roads in residential areas (Local and Collector roads) are swept during the day, between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.  Sweeping is scheduled not to conflict with front pickup automated garbage collection days. Please be sure to move your cart off the street once your garbage has been collected.
