Clearing your sidewalks in Calgary

Within 24 hours after a snowfall has ended, it is your responsibility to remove all snow and ice from sidewalks bordering your property. Failure to do so may result in a warning notice asking you to clear the snow from around your home in a certain amount of time. If the sidewalk is not cleared within that time, The City may have the snow and ice removed from the sidewalk at your expense. For more information on this, visit our bylaws related to snow and ice page.

Free sand & salt mixture

A sand-salt mixture called pickle, is available for pick up at  City Roads’ maintenance yards, free of charge while supplies last. Limit one container per household, per visit.

Pickle helps break down built-up snow and ice on your sidewalk so you can clear it down to the bare surface.

Find a Roads maintenance yard near you or more information on The City's Road Salt Managment Plan.
