Street Sweeping

Street sweeping starts every spring in order to clear sand and debris left behind from winter.  Sweeping vehicles are equipped with dust suppression filters, however some airborne dust is normal and cannot be avoided.

How can you help?

  • Do not sweep the gutter or edge of road material into a pile
  • Please refrain from sweeping your driveway and sidewalk debris onto the roadway
  • Use caution when passing or travelling near sweeping equipment
  • Avoid parking on the road when sweepers are in your area

Benefits of street sweeping

  • Improves road safety for vehicles, pedestrians, runners, and cyclist 
  • Protects the environment by reducing the amount of material that is washed away into our storm sewer system which leads to rivers, streams, and creeks
  • Enhances curb appeal and keeps our community and business areas clean and attractive

Hours of Operation

The hours of operations for sweepers may vary, however most of the sweeping will be carried out weekdays between the hours of 6:00am and 5:00pm.


Any areas missed should be reported to [email protected] or 905-356-1355 (24/7 answering service line).
