West Kelowna conducts street sweeping throughout the city. During the busier months in the spring, a contractor is hired due to heavier volumes of debris on the road. With more equipment on the road, street sweeping can be completed in a timelier fashion. This enables West Kelowna crews to then return to routine street sweeping maintenance levels, usually by mid Spring, barring any unusual weather occurrences.

The City of West Kelowna is responsible for the following additional services:
Annual road rehabilitation and pedestrian improvement programs
Sidewalk and walkway maintenance in the vicinity of municipal properties
