Leaves are falling in Brandon and that means the City of Brandon Streets & Roads Section is back out on the streets with its street sweeping equipment!
Work to clear catch basins of tree leaves, seeds and other debris prior to the winter season has begun in Residential Zone G, which is the downtown core. Crews have also begun sweeping in Zone A, which includes Richmond Avenue to Victoria Avenue. Crews may move between zones from day-to-day depending on when the regular refuse, recycle and green cart collection is taking place.
Residents are encouraged to check the Brandon Street Sweeping Map for regular updates. Weather-permitting, all municipally maintained streets will be swept prior to the onset of winter.
Residents are not required to move their vehicles off the street when street sweeping crews are in their neighbourhood unless no parking signs are posted. Moving your vehicle off the street will assist sweeping efforts. The street sweeping program may involve posting of temporary no parking signs. Please watch for signs in your area and remove vehicles from the affected streets so the sweepers can complete a thorough job. Failure to remove vehicles when no parking signs are posted may result in a parking ticket and/or tow.
Residents can also greatly assist the process by refraining from raking leaves from their yards and boulevards into the streets or on top of storm sewer catch basins. Once raked, yard debris should be properly bagged and either placed in your residential Green Cart or taken to any of the City’s yard waste drop-off depots listed here.
