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. 

For in-depth information on this program, including sweeping schedules and background information, please go to www.calgary.ca/sweep

Signage

Citizens will see 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.
