The City of Calgary is launching its 2016 street cleaning program on Sunday, April 3rd. This year, they will be applying an accelerated cleaning schedule. Cleaning will take place seven days a week to reduce the amount of material that can get washed into our storm sewer system. In order to facilitate quick and efficient cleaning of our streets, citizens will now have to move their vehicles and bins on weekends if crews are scheduled to clean at that time.
An important change from last year is that vehicles left on the street during sweeping will be subject to ticketing during the dates and times specified on community signs. This is a change that will impact all communities in Calgary. Additionally, if a "No Parking" sign is present, vehicles will be towed and the owner of the vehicle fined. New parking ticket prices of $120 that were introduced last year will be in effect for all vehicles left on the street during Spring Clean-up.
To help Calgarians with complying with the requirements, a new email subscription service is available on Calgary.ca/sweep – please sign up to receive an email the day before your street will be swept.
To learn more about the program and to find out when their street will be cleaned, citizens can learn more about spring clean-up at Calgary.ca/sweep.
