On Garbage Day – Please Don’t Park on the Street


Public Works and Engineering Services asks residents to refrain from parking vehicles on city streets on your garbage collection day.

It is difficult for large refuse trucks to manoeuvre around parked cars.

The City of Sault Ste. Marie thanks citizens for their cooperation and patience in the winter months.


  1. Why doesn’t the city just go to zero parking on the streets for the winter? Or just section the city into zones where parking is not allowed on the pickup days in the specified zones. Or only have parking on one side of the street. And while you’re at it start thinking as well about the fact that fire trucks and ambulances have difficulties navigating the narrow streets that haven been neglected by snow operations. But, yes let’s worry about the garbage trucks.
