Street Sweeping Program
April 17, 2023
City of Fernie street sweepers are out completing their first pass to remove bulk sand from priority winter routes. Over the coming weeks, crews will begin the annual comprehensive street sweeping program and work through each neighbourhood. This will be followed by a final touch-up sweeping pass in late spring.
Residents out doing their own spring cleaning of boulevards, can gather winter sand and place it at the curb for pick up by the sweeper. For collection sand must be evenly distributed at the road-side, large piles of sand or piles containing mixed materials that could clog the sweeper will be bypassed. Please refrain from distributing sand onto a swept road and avoid putting winter sand in catch basins as this can lead to serious drainage issues. On your scheduled sweeping dates please help our crews by parking off-street where possible.
The following schedule is subject to change on short notice to adjust for weather, breakdowns, and unforeseen events:
Annex May 1st – 3rd
Maintown May 3rd – 5th
Mountview May 8th – 9th
Parkland/Alpine/Ghostrider May 9th – 10th
