City-wide spring cleanup begins Sunday night, April 22, 2018

On Sunday, April 22, at 10 p.m., crews will begin the annual city-wide spring cleanup. The entire street network, including back lanes, will be swept over the next five to six weeks. Work will initially focus on the downtown area, major routes, bridges and overpasses.

During the $6 million operation, sidewalks, active transportation pathways, boulevards and medians on main routes, bus routes and collector streets will be swept. Crews will also clean up litter and debris within City parks. Clean up of boulevards in residential areas will be limited to areas where there is excessive accumulation of sand.

Avoid a ticket and tow

To assist in efficient street cleaning operations, temporary "no parking" signs will be placed on some streets to restrict parking during scheduled cleaning times. Please note that not all streets will have spring cleanup signage. The City will only post signs on streets where parked vehicles present a problem to street cleaning. Motorists are encouraged to find alternate parking during the posted cleaning times to avoid being ticketed or towed. The cost of a parking ticket is $150.00, and the cost of a tow is $118.13.

Do your part

Citizens are urged not to rake yard waste material or other debris onto streets as this can plug drains and cause ponding problems as well as increase the risk of basement flooding. Debris should be put out for regular garbage collection. Compostable yard waste material (e.g., grass clippings, leaves), can be placed out for yard waste collection in any reusable containers without a lid, cardboard boxes, or paper yard waste bags.
