Roads, Sidewalks & Streetlights

Street Sweeping

The City of Niagara Falls Sweeping Program will begin on/or about May 17, 2021 weather permitting.  The program will be completed, weather permitting, within 10 – 15 working days of commencement.  For the 2021 year, we will be cleaning all areas at the same time instead of going area by area. Please ensure any belongings or refuse on or overhanging City streets are removed until such time the sweepers have completed your area (vehicles, basketball nets, recycle bins etc.).

This year, additional temporary dump locations were provided for the contractor in order to quickly and efficiently complete the sweep. Each public location is indicated on a map listed below. These locations are temporary contractor disposal sites only and any other dumping will be subject to City's dumping by-law.

Each site will be cleaned and restored once the program is complete.
