City of Ottawa - Street sweeping operations now in effect

The City of Ottawa's winter overnight parking restrictions are now completed for the 2016-2017 season.  The City would like to thank you for your cooperation in making our streets safer throughout the winter season.
On Sunday, April 9 City of Ottawa crews will begin the annual city-wide sweeping of streets and sidewalks, including both daytime and night-time operations. These operations are necessary to remove debris, dust and sand that accumulated over the winter months.

In addition to the city-wide sweeping operations, the City completes concentrated sweeping operations in neighbourhoods that support continuous on-street parking.
During concentrated street sweeping debris from boulevards, sidewalks and medians is swept or flushed onto the roadway, where a vacuum truck then picks up the majority of grit, debris, small particles and dust.  This operation may be repeated several times to ensure a clean surface.  If vehicles are parked on the street, the un-swept area is noted and crews must then return to sweep that portion. Your patience and co-operation to keep vehicles off the streets during this period is appreciated.

Concentrated street sweeping will commence Sunday, April 9 through to Friday, April 14, 2017; subject to weather conditions.  This year, concentrated street sweeping t will take place during daytime operations only and will be performed in the following areas:   Downtown Core, Vanier, New Edinburgh, Sandy Hill, Glebe, Centretown, West Centretown, By-Ward Market, Lowertown, Ottawa East, Ottawa South and sections of Overbrook.

Visit or call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401) for more information about street cleaning schedules and operations.
