RE: Time for your beauty sweep!! 2020 fall street sweeping starts October 13
The annual Fall Street Sweeping program gets underway Tuesday, October 13! Cleaning up leaves in the fall helps prevents them from collecting in gutters causing flooding in the spring.
Only the leafiest streets in the following 11 neighbourhoods will be swept: Buena Vista, Caswell Hill, City Park, Exhibition, Holiday Park, King George, Mayfair, Meadow Green, Nutana, Riversdale and Varsity View.
Check out the area maps at saskatoon.ca/sweep to see which streets are included. Remember, no neighbourhoods have every road 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 to 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 leaves and 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.
Find your area sweeping sweeping schedule at saskatoon.ca/sweep. Stay up to date with the City of Saskatoon Service Alerts for any unexpected changes that may affect the sweeping schedule.
Registration is Thursday, September 5 AND Tuesday, September 10, from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at Brunskill School, Multi-Purpose Room, 101 Wiggins Avenue North.
A membership fee of $10/individual OR $20/family per year is required to participate in programs and must be presented at the time of registration. A fee of $10 will apply to late registrations. Varsity View Community Association honours other community association memberships.
In an effort to ensure everyone who wants to particpate can, cost-as-a-barrier assistance is available for those facing hardships. To inquire, please contact Barb (email@example.com) or inquire with any volunteer on registration night. All inquiries are confidential.
With winter trying to make an early entrance, crews are busy with the annual fall sweeping program! As you clear up leaves from your yard this fall we want to remind you that City street sweepers will be in your neighbourhood over the next couple of weeks, removing leaves and debris from roads in heavily treed neighbourhoods. Remember it’s illegal to push leaves onto the street (The Street Use Bylaw). Extra leaves on roadways can cause spring drainage issues. Leaves can be placed loose in your green cart, taken to compost depots, or bagged and put into black carts. Learn more at saskatoon.ca/leaves or call our 24-hour customer service centre at 306-975-2476.
The sweeping program is expected to start Monday, October 15, and is determined by the weather and the amount of leaves on the ground. Be on the lookout for the bright yellow No Parking signs that let you know your street is about to be swept – reminding you to move your vehicle off the street to avoid a possible ticket and tow. Find your neighbourhood sweeping schedule at saskatoon.ca/sweeping and monitor City of Saskatoon Service Alerts to hear about unexpected changes that can affect your sweeping day.
