Street sweeping is well underway in Kelowna and crews are hoping residents can help them get the work done properly.

Residents are asked to watch for signs alerting them to street cleaning operations and to keep their vehicles and basketball hoops off streets wherever possible so that the sweepers can fully clean the street in one pass.

If it rains, sweeping is postponed until road conditions dry out.

City forces, together with hired contractors, rid the streets of sand applied during the winter season to keep streets safe.

Sweepers will be operating 20 hours a day cleaning a total of 1,600-lane kilometers, including bike lanes.
