Updates on Snow Response

When the Town of Orangeville receives more than 5 centimetres of snow, updates on the response efforts will be posted here. 

Follow us on social media for more updates: FacebookTwitter and Instagram

Snowplowing and salting roads

We will begin snowplowing municipal roads once 5 centimetres of snow has fallen. Snow is removed from main streets and arterial roads first in order to keep driving and parking lanes clear and safe. Then, residential and side streets will be plowed.

Sanding and salting of roads is typically done with snowplowing when the road conditions become slippery.

Winter parking

Please make sure to follow the winter parking regulations so snowplows can clear municipal roads.

Sidewalk snow removal

We will clear and salt all sidewalks in the Town following the general order of priority:

  • municipal buildings and facilities
  • school and transit routes
  • commercial areas
  • arterial and collector roads
  • curb-faced sidewalks
  • local roads
