Your collaboration!

Snow removal operations require close collaboration between our teams and our residents. Here are some small things you can do to make our operations more efficient.

  • Follow weather forecasts for the area and be prepared when a major snowstorm is forecast.
  • Remove vehicles parked on the street before and during snow removal operations, even if you are dealing with a contractor for the driveway to your property. If you can put your vehicle in your garage, do so.
  • Remind your contractor to contact the City to find out when our snow removal operations will take place. This way, you will avoid having to re-clear your entrance.
  • Do not put snow on the street and advise your snow removal contractor not to do so either.
  • Do not cover fire hydrants, whether or not they are on your property. A fire can occur in both winter and summer, and emergency services need quick access to it.
  • Place your garbage, recycling and organic waste bins at least 30 cm (12 in.) from the sidewalk, curb or street. If a major snowstorm is forecast, avoid taking out your bins. Instead, wait until the next collection.
  • If you have the opportunity to clear your storm drain, do so, as there are over 4,000 storm drains in the City. We will greatly appreciate your gesture!
  • Help each other! Give a hand to seniors and those with disabilities by helping them clear the snow from their driveways or alleys.
  • Keep children safe. Do not allow them to play in the snow on the side of the road or in an area where the snowplow is likely to pass.
