The City of Grande Prairie has a scheduled snow plowing program for residential streets, occurring the day before garbage collection day. Residential snow plowing is a contracted service that only takes place when a rotation is initiated.
Plowing will not normally take place on the weekends; therefore, if Monday is garbage collection day, Friday is snow plowing day.
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.
Designated days and areas for snow removal:
Snow Plowing Day
Features of the scheduled service

Please note: Priority routes such as major collector roads and bus routes, do not follow the Residential Snow Plowing Schedule.
Driveway Windrow Clearing
The City of Grande Prairie began driveway windrow clearing on December 1, 2017.
City Crews will clear all windrows previously left across driveway entrances during residential snow plowing service.
The intent of the program is to remove the larger windrows of snow at the driveway entrance that could prohibit a vehicle from coming or going from the residence. The windrow clearing project expects to clear the majority of the snow from driveway entrances but residents may still need to clear a much smaller area.
For further information on the City of Grande Prairie snow removal program / ice control program residents may speak to a customer service representative by calling the Citizen Contact Centre at 780-538-0300.
