Street sweeping begins April 4

Spring is here! It’s time for some spring-cleaning in Sherwood Park.

Arterial roads such as Baseline Road, Wye Road, Clover Bar Road, Sherwood Drive and Broadmoor Boulevard will be swept through the night when there is less traffic. Sweepers will work in residential neighbourhoods through the daytime hours.

Signs will be posted in residential neighbourhoods at least 24 hours before sweepers begin working in each area. Watch for signs in your neighbourhood. Help make sure your street receives a clean sweep!  

  • Removing parked cars. Vehicles will not be ticketed or towed during street sweeping, but the less vehicles on the road will allow the sweepers to do a better job. 
  • Sweep your sidewalk and/or driveway. Sweep gravel and dirt onto the road.
  • Clear the road. Remove all rubber driveway mats and any other on-street obstructions, such as basketball nets and waste collection carts.

Sweepers often make several passes down the same road to remove the dirt and debris, depending on the build-up of material on the road.

All the dirt and debris is hauled to the City of Edmonton’s sand recycling centre to be cleaned and stored for winter use.
