Shoveling snow on a walk


Residents and businesses are responsible under City Bylaws to clear any accumulated snow from sidewalks located adjacent to their property as soon as possible to make sure pedestrians are safe.

  • Report un-shovelled sidewalks by email bylawcomplaint@surrey.ca or by calling 604-591-4370 with specific details of the location.
  • Report a snow or ice problem, or ask any questions about our snow and ice control operations by submitting your inquiry online or calling us at 604-591-4152.

Tips for Snow:

  • Shovel snow onto your lawn, adjacent snow piles or onto your lawn, not the street

During snow removal operations, the snow is ploughed toward the road-edge. Accordingly, this may result in some driveways and/or sidewalks being blocked by the ploughed snow where snow plough operations occur. We apologize for this inconvenience; however, in some cases this is unavoidable. Should this occur along your property frontage, please do not shovel snow from your driveway onto roadways as this may result in snowploughs pushing the snow back into your driveway and may contribute to vehicle access problems along your street. We recommend that you place snow onto your lawn or onto adjacent snow piles or onto your lawn. This may also present a hazard to motorists or cause vehicle access issues. In an effort to minimize these challenges, consider hiring a snow and ice removal contractor.

    Park your vehicle along the curb during snowfall events

This ensures snow and ice operations are conducted in the most effective and efficient manner. If this is not possible, we ask that you please make an attempt at coordinating efforts with your neighbours to park vehicles along the same side of the street within your neighbourhood.

  • Keep garbage and recycling bins off roadways where snow ploughing may take place

Prolonged snowfall combined with icy conditions may result in delayed garbage and recycling collection. Should this occur, the City will make every effort to resume collection the following day, or allow residents to place double their weekly limit at curb-side the following week.

  • Keep catch basins free of debris, especially during melting conditions

If you are aware that a catch basin exists in front of your property, please help us by ensuring to keep it clear especially during melting conditions. Blocked catch basins may result in excess accumulation of water along the road area, a situation that could become dangerous if it subsequently freezes. It may also result in flooding of adjacently properties depending on the extent of the blockage and the amount of melting snow.

We would like to send a thank you out to the White Rock Fire Rescue Team for making it easier (as they do every year) for us to dispose of our Christmas trees.



On Sunday, the whole team was out in force in Centennial Park to accept our trees (and donations to local charities and the Vancouver Burn unit). Unlike last year, the weather was stellar for the event.



When we arrived around 2pm, there were no other vehicles there, yet they had already received about $6000 in donations. As we drove away there were suddenly about 9 cars with trees  and one man on a bike towing his tree on a trail-a-bike.


 


Thanks again White Rock Fire Rescue! Your community service (not to mention what a great mood you were all in) is inspirational!
