Street cleaning at mid sweep

Street sweepers have been working in the District of West Kelowna since the second week in March and cleaning of the municipality’s 250 kilometre road network is half way done with scheduled completion expected by mid-May.

Neighbourhoods and areas completed to date include:

  • Casa Loma
  • Boucherie Centre
  • Gellalty
  • Lakeview Heights
  • Mission Hill/Sunnyside/Green Bay/Pritchard Drive
  • Westbank Centre

Areas still to be completed include:

  • Glenrosa
  • Rose Valley/West Kelowna Estates
  • Shannon Lake
  • Smith Creek
  • West Kelowna Industrial Park

For safety and efficiency purposes, residents are asked to not approach drivers.

Residents can also greatly help the cleaning process by parking vehicles off street while sweepers work in their areas. Signs are posted prior to street sweeping commencing in each neighbourhood.

Please note that sweepers will leave debris on the road after the first pass, and the equipment operator will return for additional passes to complete the cleaning process.

Sand piles will also be temporarily deposited in each neighbourhood during the street sweeping process and be removed as quickly as possible once cleaning is completed in that area.

The District of West Kelowna thanks everyone for their patience while the municipality and its contractor work to complete spring street sweeping.
