Street cleaning equipment in use in a residential area in Okotoks.

Residential street cleaning is underway. Watch for street cleaning signs placed at the main intersections of residential areas. If you see a street cleaning sign as you enter your neighborhood, please move your vehicle from the street during the referenced time.  Please refer to the street cleaning map to see the order they are cleaning around Town:

You may sweep any gravel off your sidewalk and driveway onto the roadway prior to the arrival of the street sweeper. Please remove ramps or other obstructions from the gutter in front of your driveway. If crews must go around obstacles, they will not be able to return until after all other zones have been completed so don’t be a bad neighbour!

Should your area be scheduled for cleaning on your garbage / recycling collection day, place your refuse bins out as usual.  Transportation crews monitor these areas when cleaning is occurring and will move bins if needed to allow the sweeper to pass by.

The public is reminded to proceed with extreme caution when in the vicinity of street cleaning equipment, obey all construction signage or whenever possible, avoid this area while equipment is in operation.

Cleaning efforts are subject to weather and equipment and may change depending on these or other factors.  

For information on street cleaning progress, please call 403.938.8952.
