Spring street sweeping commences in early to mid-March, weather permitting, and continues until approximately mid-May each year.
Commercial centres and arterial routes are completed first. Street sweeping priorities are also based on the volumes of vehicle traffic on roadways, where winter road sand may generate excessive dust. Generally, lower lying areas are completed first, since higher elevation neighbourhoods can still receive snow in March.
Once all the snow and ice has melted from the road shoulders and curbs, the spring sweeping program is started aggressively.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Property owners are encouraged to sweep all debris that may be on the sidewalk that borders their lots before the roads are swept by the street sweepers. Your cooperation in removing all vehicles from the street to enable the street sweepers to clean the entire street is greatly appreciated. By doing this we can avoid having those annoying missed spots in your neighbourhood.
If you have questions, concerns or would like more information regarding street sweeping, please contact the District of West Kelowna's Roads and Contracts Department at:
