Where do I put the snow from my sidewalk and driveway?

As per Snow Removal Bylaw 018-11, any ice or snow removed from private property cannot be placed on the roadway or boulevard of a street. Please shovel the snow and ice onto your property.

Keeping extra snow off the roads mitigates three common issues:

1. Limits water pooling and ice build up during the freeze/thaw cycle from Chinooks.

2. Helps the storm water system absorb both melting snow and rainfall more efficiently in the spring.

3. Makes street sweeping in the spring easier. Larger piles of snow and ice take longer to melt. They are a safety hazard for crews and can cause damage to street sweeping equipment.
