Residential Snow Clearing

The City of Grande Prairie's snow plowing program is a contracted service that occurs in two-week rotations, only when triggered by the City.  When the service is initiated, residents can expect crews in their neighbourhood on the day before garbage collection.

Plowing does not normally take place on the weekends; therefore, if Monday is garbage collection day, Friday is snow plowing day. 

What initiates/triggers the service?

Residential snow plowing service starts 24 hours after a major snow event or when 10 cm of snow has accumulated on roadways and will continue as weather conditions dictate. Before starting a two-week round of residential plowing, City staff will consider current and upcoming weather conditions.
