Night-time Operations
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 are able to 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.

Residents' patience and understanding is greatly appreciated.

Collector boulevard cleaning and residential / collector street sweeping
Collector boulevard cleaning and residential / collector street sweeping is scheduled to start the week of May 7.  All residential and collector streets will be cleaned during the day (7 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and are scheduled to be completed the week of June 1  . These dates are contingent on favourable weather conditions.

General Info
Signs are placed at the entrances to the neighbourhoods in advance of the cleaning equipment moving into the area. These signs direct residents to keep their vehicles off of the street so that a complete and thorough job of street sweeping can occur so as to limit the need to ‘re-do’ missed areas.

Roadway street sweeping continues throughout the summer months along arterials and collector streets as needed.

Spring cleanup information:
Posted in the City Lights section in the Gazette or you can contact Public Works at 780-459-1557 for more information.

Litter Control

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 in to the summer months when Public Works has many casual staff out in the field.
