The City of Grande Prairie has a scheduled snow plowing program for residential streets, occurring the day before garbage collection day. Plowing will not normally take place on the weekends; therefore, if Monday is garbage collection day, Friday is snow plowing day. Snow Removal Map Icon

What initiates the service?
Residential Snow Plowing Service will start 24 hours after a major snow event or when 10 cm of snow has accumulated on roadways and will continue as weather conditions dictate.
