Spring Clean Up-Program

By Events, Issues, Resources

Now that winter is hopefully behind us, I am pleased to share with you the details of our annual Spring Clean-up Program. The Program is underway and includes the following activities:

 

  • Street Sweeping
  • Snow Plow Sod Damage Inspection and Repair
  • Pothole Repair
  • Sidewalk Repair
  • Litter Clean-up
  • Inlet and Outlet Clearing

 

Street Sweeping

The city of Mississauga was able to start spring street sweeping in the Clarkson and Mavis districts a few days early.

Please be reminded that all streets, including on-street bike lanes, are expected to be completed by April 23 (weather permitting). Boulevards and islands will be cleaned from April 29 to May 24 (weather permitting).

We know that road users become eager for the streets to be swept as soon as the weather starts warming up. We appreciate their patience and are committed to completing this work as soon as possible.

After our spring clean-up is complete, we will continue to maintain roadways through our regular Street Sweeping Program.

Snow Plow Sod Damage Inspection and Repair

Snow plow sod damage service requests are commonly reported at this time of year. Sod is prone to damage by our equipment throughout the winter when the ground is soft or if there is any over growth of grass creeping onto the sidewalk.

Residents can report snow plow sod damage by calling 3-1-1, using the PingStreet app or submitting a request online.  The area will be noted and inspected this spring to see if sod replacement or re-seeding is required. Repairs typically take place from May-June and September-October.

Pothole Repair

As soon as the weather warms up our crews begin repairing potholes around the City. Staff have been especially busy over the last couple of weeks and will continue to address potholes throughout the spring and summer.

Potholes are identified pro-actively through regular patrolling of the City’s road network in accordance with Minimum Maintenance Standards. Residents can also help by reporting potholes to us by calling 3-1-1, using the PingStreet app or submitting a request online.  The area will be inspected within three business days and made safe. If additional repairs are required, they will be completed on a priority basis as a part of our regular maintenance schedule.

Sidewalk Inspection and Repair

Each year, we hire students to inspect our sidewalk network. Starting in May, these staff will walk every sidewalk in the City and record deficiencies. Residents can also report sidewalk damage by calling 3-1-1, using the Pingstreet app or submitting a request online.  The area will be inspected within three business days and made safe. If additional repairs are required, they will be completed on a priority basis as a part of our regular maintenance schedule.

Litter Clean up

Crews have begun their regularly scheduled clean-up of debris and litter on the road allowance. Residents can also report litter or dumping on the road allowance by calling 3-1-1, using the Pingstreet app or submitting a request online.

Residents should call the Ministry of Transportation at 1-800-268-4686 to report litter on 400 series highway ramps.

Inlet and Outlet Cleaning

Crews have also begun to clear debris from inlets and outlets to ensure stormwater can flow freely. Residents can report any build-up of natural debris, such as leaves, large tree limbs or sediment, by calling 3-1-1.

Illegal Sign Blitzes

Crews from our Signs and Pavement Markings Unit and four Works yards complete two illegal sign blitzes annually in the spring and fall. Our next blitz is scheduled for April 24th, weather permitting. Residents can report illegal signs by calling 3-1-1, through the PingStreet app, or on the City’s website.

Please let me know if damage or debris in the road allowance is causing a public safety risk, residents should call 3-1-1 directly.

Sincerely, 

Stephen Dasko, Councillor Ward 1
