The City of Lloydminster has announced residential street-sweeping operations will begin on Monday, April 25th.
Weather permitting, sweeper units will be operating around the clock for cleanup, starting at 6:00 a.m. Sweeping will begin in the Pink Zone and will proceed to the Blue Zone. To allow workers to effectively complete sweeping operations, residents are asked to remove vehicles and curbside collection carts in advance of street sweeping operations.
Cleaning operations on major roads has already commenced. The City undertakes street-cleaning operations in order to minimize debris entering stormwater collection systems, reduce dust, and provide clean and safe roadways.
Advisory signs will be posted in residential neighbourhoods of affected areas at least 36 hours prior to the sweep. If a sign is posted before the weekend, residents are allowed to park their vehicles on the road. But the vehicles must be moved for the following Monday to allow for sweeping operations.
In residential areas, sweeping operations are typically carried out between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., Monday to Thursday.
Updates on the progress and location of street sweeping operations will be provided on the City website, Facebook, and Twitter.
In addition, motorists are advised to exercise caution around street sweepers and maintain a safe distance of eight metres from all equipment.
Residents with questions about the street sweeping program can call 780-874-3700.
