2019 Spring Clean Up and Reporting Damage from Snow Removal

The City has started its annual spring clean up! Streets are being washed and swept, boulevards are being brushed to remove sand, and parks and greenspaces are being cleaned!  See Spring Clean Up on the City of Winnipeg website for a complete overview on the Spring Clean Up program and additional programs that occur  to keep our city sparkling. PLEASE NOTE: Clean-up will occur over 4-5 weeks and takes time. Often sweepers will go back to a street and clean up if there were many parked cars blocking the clean-up process.

There are many residential groups helping out with the spring clean up! A HUGE thank you to community volunteers who are helping to take care of their community! Please see the EVENTS page if you would like to help out!

Street not swept? Notify the City starting June 3rd!

311 will only take requests starting June 3rd – if you see a street or your street has NOT been cleaned yet – email 311@winnipeg.ca or call 311.  Call in your street BEFORE June 30th as that is when the sweeping program ends.

The city takes between 4-6 weeks to do spring clean-up. Street and boulevard cleaners are all over the city sweeping and washing – often going back to streets that had parked cars or doing a second sweep if the area has excessive sand.  But, if by June 3rd – your street has not been cleaned – notify the City of Winnipeg.
