Street Cleaning

There is an initial spring clean-up which includes all streets in the city, both curbed and non-curbed. All curbed streets will be swept on a monthly basis throughout the summer and early fall.

In the fall, all streets are cleared of leaves that fall on the roadway. The City is not responsible for clearing leaves raked onto the roadway by property owners.

It is a by-law offense to intentionally place any debris, including leaves, on a public roadway. Leaves collected from the boulevard and private properties are to be bagged for pickup under the leaf and yard waste collection program. 

Property owners are encouraged to remove leaves and debris from their ditches regularly to avoid blockages and possible flooding problems. If the culvert at your property becomes blocked with debris, call 905.935.3813.

To keep up with the City's street cleaning activity, follow us on Twitter, where updates on road conditions, construction, closures and other activity are posted during regular business hours.
