Information for Residents

Assisting the Snow Removal Effort

During winter snowstorm events, our efforts are delayed by having to deal with situations that are time-consuming and potentially dangerous. We respectfully request that you, the homeowner, assist our effort by considering the following.

Curbside Collection in Snow & Ice Events

Curbside collection may not be possible during snow & ice events. If such an event occurs, residents are usually able to put out twice the amount of materials on their normal pickup day in the following week.

Information for Seniors

Clearing snow from driveways and sidewalks can be a huge challenge for seniors. Some helpful information for seniors is provided here.

School Closures

School District 33 Chilliwack is responsible for deciding whether or not to close schools during winter events. Information on school closures is disseminated from the school district through their website, local radio, and television.

Snow Angels Needed!
