Winter: Snow clearing

There is a car behind that mound of snow but from a child's height, it is hidden. Pile your snow onto your lawn, not on the road – help keep everyone safe.

Winter snow clearing bylaws for residents: 

  • If you own or occupy property in Airdrie, you are required to clear your sidewalks of ice and snow within 24 hours of the last snowfall
  • Snow or ice from your sidewalk or driveway cannot be deposited on City roadways or public places.
  • Concerned about a property owner not clearing their sidewalk? Contact Municipal Enforcement after 24 hours of the last snowfall
  • For the full bylaws on residential snow clearing, see page 17 of the Community Standards Bylaw
