Snow Removal Contractors

Find a contractor to clear your snow or apply for a Seasonal Use of Streets permit if you are a contractor.

To remove snow from city streets, you must obtain a Seasonal Use of Streets Permit. Once obtained, you can be hired by residents to clear windrows from the street. Snow removed from streets can’t be placed back on the street, a nearby median, or on other City property (e.g., parks). It must be placed on appropriate private property or taken to one of The City’s snow storage sites (standard fees will apply).

Interested in becoming a Snow Clearing Contractor?

Contractors can apply for a Seasonal Use of Streets Permit and/or register to access The City's snow storage sites. A Seasonal Use of Streets Permit will allow you to remove snow from City property, including windrows on Grey Routes.

What you need to know before applying for a Seasonal Use of Streets Permit:

Print and complete the Seasonal Use of Streets Permit application form (pdf) and bring it, along with all required documents, to the main floor of City Hall (4914 - 48 Avenue). Read the application carefully to ensure you meet the criteria.

Residents should note that The City does not regulate the fees contractors may charge for this service.

Only snow that has been collected from within the City of Red Deer limits may be dumped at these snow storage sites. ALL loads will be subject to a minimum fee plus GST, as outlined on the registration form. All infractions will result in a total ban from the snow storage sites for the balance of the season.

As managed last year, the snow storage sites will be manned as demand dictates, and access will only be permitted when manned.

We remind you that you require a current business license to be carrying out contracted snow removal work in The City of Red Deer. For further information regarding a business license contact the City’s Licensing department at 403-342-8182.
