Free sand-salt mix for easier shoveling

 
The City's supply of sand-salt for individual use will be available for the next snowfall. The boxes are being delivered the week of Oct. 15 and stocked the week of Oct. 22.
 ​

A sand-salt mixture called pickle is available for individual use on sidewalks bordering private properties. Pickle helps breakdown snow and ice, making it easier for you to comply with the bylaw regulating snow and ice removal.

This is a free service but please note:

  • Supply is available on a first-come, first-served basis, and there’s no guarantee any is available when you arrive.
  • Limit your haul to one container per visit.
  • Bring your own container (under 25 kg) and shovel.
  • Supply is for individual use only. No contractors, please.
