Seasonal street sweeping is underway within the city as crews begin cleaning the downtown and main arterial routes before transitioning to residential areas on Monday, May 2.

Each spring, the City of Lloydminster clears debris and dust from roads, boulevards and major pathways, making them cleaner and safer for all modes of transportation. Keeping the streets clear of debris also helps minimize debris entering stormwater collection systems.

Residential street sweeping follows curbside collection zoning, which is available at Lloydminster.ca/curbside. Sweeping will begin in the green zone, followed by orange, pink, and yellow, before finishing blue.

Residents are encouraged to help do their part by not parking on the street when sweepers are scheduled to be in their area. Signs are posted in residential neighbourhoods, advising residents at least 36 hours in advance of sweeping operations. If signs remain posted into the weekend, residents are permitted to park their vehicles on the street; however, vehicles must be removed the following Monday to allow street sweeping operations to continue.

To expedite sweeping operations, residents are asked to set out waste and organics carts after 7 p.m. the day before pick up and have them removed by 7 p.m. the same day of the pickup.

Weather permitting, residential street sweeping operations are typically carried out between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., Monday to Thursday, before moving to other areas for the remainder of the night. During this time, residents are asked not to park on the street. Weekly street sweeping operations conclude Friday at 6 a.m. to allow equipment maintenance before resuming on Monday.

Updates on the progress and location of street sweeping operations can be found on the City of Lloydminster website at Lloydminster.ca/roadsandsidewalks.

Motorists are advised to exercise caution around street sweepers and maintain a safe distance of eight metres from all equipment. Residents with questions about the street sweeping program can call 780-874-3700.
