Street Cleaning

Each and every day, City staff strive to keep Victoria clean.

The City’s Street Cleaning Section is proud to play a role in keeping our city beautiful and inviting to residents and visitors.

Downtown Victoria is cleaned continuously. In other shopping areas, City Crews clean once a week. In residential areas, cleaning is carried out once every six weeks, depending on the amount of litter.
