Spring Clean-up street cleaning

Spring Clean-up officially starts April 16

The 2018 Spring Clean-up program officially starts on April 16 and will run until the middle of June. The street sweeping schedule will be available during the first week of April.

Street Sweeping (April 16 – June 16)

  • Crews sweep residential streets seven days a week and on major routes four nights a week.
  • Watch for signs in your community indicating when your street is scheduled for clean-up.
  • Parking bans in place when signs are present. Remove vehicles and bins from the road on the posted dates and times.


How you can help

The City sweeps over 16,000 lane kilometres of paved roads, and getting the work done is a collaborative effort. We would like to thank Calgarians for their help in moving their cars from the street and their blue, black and green carts on to the curb when sweeping is scheduled.

Community Parking Bans

Parking Ban signsA parking ban is in effect when Street Cleaning Community Signs with “No Parking” symbols are placed around a community during Spring Clean-up. Any vehicle that has not been removed from the street in the area is subject to ticketing.

Vehicles are subject to be ticketed and towed if the small 3-feet high "No Parking" signs are placed along the road. They will be placed at least 12 hours prior to street sweeping. If vehicles are towed:

  • The City of Calgary pays for towing if the vehicle can be taken to a nearby space.
  • The vehicle owner pays the ticket, tow, and impound fee, if taken to a lot.
