New Times for Downtown Street Cleaning Begins on May 1

The scheduled overnight street cleaning in the Downtown will now take place with new times between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. The program starts on Sunday, May 1 and continues to Friday, September 23. Vehicles must be removed from streets scheduled for cleaning.

Unlike snow removal, the downtown street cleaning schedule is pre-determined for the entire season. It is the driver’s responsibility to look up when the street is scheduled for cleaning and to move their vehicle(s) accordingly; the City of St. John’s does not post signs for street cleaning.

On the scheduled street cleaning dates, vehicles must be removed from the affected streets by 10 p.m. and cannot be returned until 6 a.m. the following morning, regardless of whether street cleaning has taken place. Failure to remove the vehicle may result in a ticket being issued.

Street cleaning is an important program as it removes dirt and debris that has accumulated on the roads during the winter months. It also reduces the amount of debris going into our City’s storm sewers and helps prevent damage to City infrastructure.
