City street cleaning crews kick up a little dust in this file photo.

City street sweepers are already out, and plan to be hitting residential streets in just over a week.

Crews have been focused so far on sweeping away winter debris from the downtown as well as collector and arterial streets, but they expect to move into residential areas by May 12.

This year, sweepers will be moving from west to east across Brandon, the reverse of last year. Residential cleaning will start in Brandon's southwest quarter on Monday morning, May 12, and work around the city, following the same schedule as trash, recycling and compost pickup.

People may notice sweeping crews leaving the area on collection day and returning once trash and recycling pick-up is finished. Residents are asked to remove empty bins from the curb as soon as possible, to help sweepers clean all areas.

Temporary "no parking" signs may be placed in some areas about 24 hours ahead of sweeping.

People can help street sweeping efforts by flagging any underground sprinkler systems that may be present on boulevards or on the city right-of-way portion of their lawns or yards.
