Street Sweeping - General Information

The CPA provides enforcement support to The City of Calgary during their Spring Clean-up program. Spring Clean-up is an annual street sweeping program that removes sanding materials and debris that have accumulated on roads and along major sidewalks and boulevards during the winter months. 

The 2018 Spring Clean-up street sweeping program starts Monday, April 23rd. For in-depth information on this program, including sweeping schedules and background information, please go to www.calgary.ca/sweep

Signage

Citizens will see the following signage posted notifying them of upcoming street sweeping in their community.

No parking is allowed on street when Street Cleaning Community Signs with “No Parking” symbols are placed around a community during Spring Clean-up. Any vehicle that has not been removed from the street in the area is subject to ticketing.

Vehicles are subject to be ticketed and towed if the small 3-feet high "No Parking" signs are placed along the road. They will be placed at least 12 hours prior to street sweeping. If vehicles are towed:

  • The Calgary Parking Authority pays for towing if the vehicle can be taken to a nearby space.
  • The vehicle owner pays the ticket, tow, and impound fee, if taken to the impound lot.

 

Fine Amount

Fine Amount $120
If Paid Within 10 Days $80
If Paid Within 30 Days $90

Fridays: April 27; May 4, 11, 18, 25; June 1, 8, 15

NOTE: Higher tag numbers are typically a result of a vehicle owner moving their vehicle prior to a tow truck arriving. Higher tow numbers would typically be due to inadequate parking ban signage present, which could be a result of them being moved or knocked over.
