Fall Sweep Begins in Select Neighbourhoods

Residents living in the Crescents, Cathedral, Lakeview, North Central, Centre Square, Heritage are encouraged to watch for signs and visit Regina.ca/sweep to sign up for Sweep Alerts as the fall street sweep begins on Monday, October 18.

City crews will be sweeping between 4 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday and are expected to be finished by October 29, weather dependent.

Drivers living in the fall street sweep area are asked to move their vehicle when their street is scheduled. Parking off-street and sharing driveways with neighbours allows the sweeper to access curbs, parking lanes and catch basins to pick up leaves and reduce neighbourhood drainage issues.
