Street Sweeping

The Department of Public Works (DPW) is responsible for street sweeping.  Every spring, sweeping begins on the main lines of the city, followed by side streets on a ward-by-ward basis. The schedule rotates every year, so that the first ward done in one year is moved to the bottom of the list in the following year.

In 2020, wards will be swept in the following order. Please note we are not doing night sweeping at this time. We are only doing sweeping during the day.


Please be aware this timeline is dependent on the snow melting.

Residents are asked to sweep sidewalks in front of their homes.  Sand should be placed in wind rows- not in piles-  so that the equipment can successfully remove it.
