Tips for residents:
- To help ensure your street is cleaned properly please avoid parking vehicles on the street when the sweepers are scheduled to be in your area.
- The City is not responsible for clearing leaves raked onto the roadway by property owners. It is an offence under the Ontario Highway Traffic Act 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 run by the Niagara Region. Please visit their website for information on the pick-up schedule and requirements.
- 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.
