The City of Mississauga begins its spring street sweeping and clean-up program after the winter season. The City’s Transportation and Works Department clears debris left behind after the winter season from roads, sidewalks, traffic islands, hard-surfaced boulevards and curb side gutters. The sweeping of all City roads begins in mid-April, which is then followed in May by the cleaning of hard-surfaced boulevards, sidewalks that are directly adjacent to the curb, curb side gutters and traffic islands.
Trees are being monitored to time the City's aerial spray program and will have one pink dot at the base of the tree, pink flagging tape at chest height and white paint dots adjacent to the new gypsy moth egg masses. The flagging tape is also labelled (MISS-1-1) meaning Mississauga Plot 1, Tree 1.
