RE: Declutter your gutter! Fall street sweeping starts October 15
The annual Fall Street Sweeping program starts Tuesday, October 15. Cleaning up leaves in the fall prevents them from collecting in gutters causing flooding in the spring.
Only the leafiest streets within the following neighbourhoods will be swept: Buena Vista, Caswell Hill, City Park, Exhibition, Holiday Park, King George, Mayfair, Nutana, Riversdale and Varsity View.
Check out the area maps at saskatoon.ca/sweepto see which streets are included. Note: the schedule is different this year and there are no neighbourhoods where every road is swept.
Watch for the yellow No Parking signs and move vehicles off the street by 7 a.m. on your sweeping day. Tickets and towing will occur so we can access the full curb lane.
How can I prepare?
- Clean up leaves that can blow onto the street. Please do not push or blow leaves onto the street.This is illegal and residents may receive a Bylaw Notice. Excess leaves can delay the cleaning schedule or even cause the entire street to be skipped.
- Place yard clippings in your City of Saskatoon green cart or consider taking them to one of the City’s compost depots for free. Learn more at saskatoon.ca/compost.
