City-wide Snow Windrow Removal Service

Earlier this year, Council approved an expanded snow windrow clearing service for all local, residential driveways.  A snow windrow is the pile of snow left at the bottom of a driveway after a snowplow has cleared the road.
 
Starting with the first significant snowfall this winter, plows will remove one car’s width of the snow windrow so you have a path to your street.
 
To ensure the success of this program, we need your help. Please…
 
Don’t park on the street or over the sidewalk when it’s snowing or before snow is expected. This applies even if you have a temporary parking permit. Keep the roads clear for plows and emergency vehicles – or you will be ticketed and/or towed.
 

1. On waste collection days, place your garbage, blue boxes and green bins one meter from the curb on the right side of your driveway (if you’re facing the house). This will allow the plow to remove the snow windrow without disturbing your waste bins.

 

2. Don’t park near the bottom of your driveway. Windrow clearing can only happen if there is at least four feet of clearance between the road and your vehicle.  

 

If you previously received our snow windrow clearing service, you do not need to apply again. You’ll automatically receive this service.
