Burlington, Ont. – May 22, 2020 — The City of Burlington’s annual spring street sweeping blitz will begin May 25. The cleaning of winter sand and debris from roads is expected to take two weeks with a crew of six vehicles working seven days a week.
Crews will work through zones in the City with each zone expected to take up to one week, depending on weather and the number of obstacles on the road. Progress updates will be shared through social media.

Street sweepers are exempt from the noise bylaw; however, to reduce noise disruption, residential streets will only be cleaned between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. The rest of the time will be spent cleaning industrial areas, primary and secondary roads.
If possible, residents are asked to avoid parking cars on the roads and to remove encroaching basketball and road hockey nets from the street so the sweepers can move quickly and efficiently.
“We know people are working from home and residential parking enforcement rules are relaxed during our COVID-19 response but during the days that your home-zone is being swept, it would help us out a lot if you could remove your vehicles from the street. Road hockey nets and basketball nets should always be stored off of sidewalks and roads. The fewer obstacles our sweepers have, the faster they can move while doing a more complete job without having to return.” — Mark Adam, Manager of Road Operations, City of Burlington
