City begins spring cleaning

Spring steet sweeping is proceeding on schedule and is slated to wrap up within the next two weeks

Spring is in the air and crews have been busy cleaning roads and preparing parks and sports fields for the longer, warmer days ahead.

Sports fields, and washrooms at athletic parks will open April 15. Public washrooms at other city parks and greenways are open now.

Spring street sweeping is proceeding on schedule and is slated to wrap up within the next two weeks. Please help to keep our streets and boulevards clean by covering trailer and truck bed loads and taking garbage, recycling and yard waste to the designated drop off facilities including the Westside Residential Waste Disposal and Recycling Centre on Asquith Road in West Kelowna or the Glenmore Landfill in Kelowna.

Sand has been deposited as a precaution at Green Bay, Casa Loma and the end of Whitworth Drive, should it be needed for flood prevention this spring.

As local creeks and Okanagan Lake rise closer to their peak levels, bags will also be made available at these locations. If West Kelowna residents feel they need sand bags sooner, they can contact the city’s Operations Department at 778-797-8849.
