With the majority of our tree canopy now bare, City of Vancouver crews will begin to sweep and clear leaves from streets starting November 12th in Kitsilano.

Temporary “no stopping” signs will be posted one day in advance of cleaning activities in areas where leaves are being cleared.

The City is asking residents to do their part by moving their vehicle by 7:00am on the date cleaning begins.

Vehicles that are not moved will be issued a ticket with fines of $100 ($60 discounted penalty if paid within 14 days) and will receive a courtesy tow to a nearby location.

City crews will initially focus on streets with higher volumes of leaves and may need to do one or two passes with the sweeper. Advanced sweeping may occur on some streets depending on volume of leaves.

    I forgot to move my car on time, and now I know why there were so many dead leaves on top of my car. I wish I had known about this earlier because it was a challenging task to get rid of all the leaves.
