For Immediate Release

Another sign that spring is almost here, the street sweepers are coming!
With the weather warming up, it’s time for the City of West Kelowna to conduct its annual street sweeping of municipal roads.
Street sweepers will begin in the lower elevation neighbourhoods and will work upwards to higher roads over the next several weeks. Sweeping in school zones will be completed over spring break, weather permitting.
Residents are asked to please not sweep road debris into piles on the roads as this can significantly slow down the progress of street sweeping. Please leave the road debris for the sweeper to collect.
Signage will be placed in neighbourhoods indicating when street sweeping will begin and will remain posted while equipment is working in the area. Residents are reminded to help out by keeping vehicles parked off street so equipment operators can make complete sweeps of the road.
Sweeping the City’s 250-kilometre road network is expected to take approximately six to eight weeks. For more information, please visit westkelownacity.ca/streetsweeping.
