Street sweeping begins April 10

Spring cleanup of roads in Sherwood Park will begin on Monday, April 10, weather permitting.

Main 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 during the day in residential neighbourhoods. Signs will be posted 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 sweepers can do a better job if vehicles are removed from the street.
  • Sweep your sidewalk and/or driveway. Sweep gravel and dirt onto the road.
  • Clear the road. Remove all rubber driveway mats (curb ramps) 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.
