Winnipeg starts fall leaf sweeping program
Expected to take 2 to 3 weeks with a $400,000 price tag
The City of Winnipeg is starting its fall clean up of streets today.
Crews will be working around the clock, targeting areas with large amounts of leaves. The city said it expects the leaf sweeping to take about two to three weeks. It said the program will cost about $400,000.
Motorists are being advised that there will be "no parking" signs placed in areas where crews will be working.
The city is asking residents to not rake their leaves onto the street because it can plug street drains. Residents can take their yard waste to the Brady Road Landfill.
More information can be found on the City of Winnipeg's website.
