Street Sweeping Information
Public Works will complete the following activities through the course of its spring cleanup and maintenance operations:
- Arterial Boulevard Cleaning and Street Sweeping.
- Collector Boulevard Cleaning and Collector / Residential Street Sweeping.
- Litter Control.
- Pothole Patching.
Public Works will be sweeping residential neighbourhoods on a rotational basis. Please keep in mind if your rotation falls on a waste pick up day we will commence the sweeping the next day. Subdivision sweeping notification signs will be posted in subdivision entrances before work's commenced; residents are to avoid parking on the streets during these periods to assist the sweeping operations and to limit the need to ‘re-do’ missed areas.
In Spring 2018, street sweeping was completed in the following order:
|1. Heritage Lakes||9. Lacombe Park / East / Estates|
|2. Grandin||10. Deer Ridge|
|3. Oakmont||11. North Ridge|
|4. Erin Ridge||12. Kingswood|
|5. Inglewood / Ironwood||13. Woodlands|
|6. Sturgeon Heights||14. Akinsdale|
|7. Forest Lawn||15. Pineview / Parkwood|
|8. Mission / Riverside||16. Braeside|
Night-time crews will be working between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Residents backing onto arterial roadways may experience some related noise. This inconvenience will only last a short time.
Nighttime sweeping has proven to be very successful for Public Works as City crews can sweep boulevards along arterial roads and center medians of the highway during the night.
This operation is beneficial because:
- It allows crews to operate more safely and efficiently.
- There is less traffic during the night and therefore provides a safer environment for crews.
- There are minimal traffic disruptions.
- It allows crews to complete sweeping earlier than relying solely on daytime operations.
The patience and understanding of residents is greatly appreciated.
Collector boulevard cleaning and residential / collector street sweeping
Collector boulevard cleaning and residential / collector street sweeping is scheduled to start in the spring. All residential and collector streets will be cleaned during the day (7 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and are scheduled to be completed promptly. These dates are contingent on favourable weather conditions.
Each year, Public Works initiates a Spring Clean-Up program with a round of litter picking at all entranced roadways in St. Albert. This cycle continues throughout the year and expands during the summer months when Public Works has increased staff in the field.
