It’s street sweeping season as The City’s annual residential Spring Clean-up program is set to begin on Monday, April 15. Those in the first scheduled communities will see signs go up indicating their sweeping date. Residential street sweeping runs Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Keep an eye out for signs that will go out in your community prior to sweeping so you know when to keep your vehicles off the road.

Calgarians can also find their scheduled sweeping date by visiting calgary.ca/sweep, where they can use our address lookup. We also encourage all Calgarians to sign up for e-mail and text notification reminders.

Another thing to remember is that during sweeping days, you should place your black, green and blue carts on your lawn and keep them off the street.

Calgary Parking also plays a key role in ensuring the program is a success. Camera equipped cars help enforce temporary sweeping bans, but parking officers also validate these bans by verifying community signage is accurate and visible to residents ahead of time.

Another thing to be aware of is that street sweepers often make multiple passes over the same street, so even if your street looks like it has been swept, be sure to keep your vehicle off the road for the full duration of the ban. 

Residential street sweeping is expected to continue through June 2024. The City recommends back lanes (ensure adequate clearance remains), driveways and garages as alternate locations for parking. For more information, visit calgary.ca/sweep.

Additional information:

  • The budget for the Spring Clean-up Program is approximately $7 million.
