Street Sweeping & Lane Grading

Spring Street Cleaning Notice

With spring approaching, the Town of Olds is asking you to remove any rubber or plastic driveway ramps, debris, chains, hitches, or other items from roadway curbs.
Crews will be conducting a town-wide sweep in April to clear curbs and municipal rights of the debris and gravel from winter. 
Watch for signs in your neighbourhood and Town of Olds social media posts for sweeping notices.


Street Sweeping and Lane Grading take place in Spring and Fall. Town staff do the Uptowne area and the primary and collector streets first, and then move on to residential areas. Signs are posted on streets to be swept the day before sweeping.

Important Notes

  • Sweeping can begin as early as 6:00 AM. Please remove vehicles from the street the night before.

  • For maximum efficiency, the sweeper does an area once and moves on to the next area - it does not come back to do spots missed because vehicles weren't moved.

  • The Street Sweeping schedule may be interrupted by bad weather, equipment failure, or other operations emergencies. Staff do their best to get to your area as fast as they can! We appreciate your cooperation.

  • Follow Town of Olds Social Media for notices of street sweeping or grading.
