Over the next few weeks, around 1,000 workers will clean 4,100 km of streets, 6,500 km of sidewalks, nearly 900 km of bike lanes and some 1,500 parks, according to a notice from the city published Friday.

"To make the most of our public spaces and keep them in good condition, we also invite the public to do their part," said Montreal Executive Committee member Maja Vodanovic in the release. "We must all show civic-mindedness and eco-responsibility by throwing away our garbage and cleaning the outside of our homes."

City cleaning operations involve hosing down the streets, sweeping debris with mechanical brooms, and sucking up waste with "cyclovacs." Top Stories
