The City of Welland Public Works Division will initiate the street sweeping program of city roadways on April 12, 2021. Although this program has the potential to pause due to weather-related conditions, staff anticipate the program will take approximately four to six weeks to complete. City staff will commence street sweeping within zone one and will continue systematically to zone 19.
Sweeping creates a healthier environment because it reduces dust and other airborne contaminants. The street sweeping program also reduces the amount of material that washes away into the storm-water system, which ultimately leads to the canal, river, and creeks.
