The piles of snow at the end of your driveway, after your road has been plowed, are called windrows. The windrow removal program is offered to residents who are 65+ or are physically unable to clear windrows and have no able bodied persons under 65 residing with them. The program begins on Dec. 1 (of the application year) and concludes on March 31. 

We are no longer taking applications for the 2021-22 winter season.

How does the windrow removal program work?

The service begins every time a snowfall exceeds 10 cm (4 inches) and only after the Town of Milton has completed plowing of all roads.

  • Smaller plow units are then dispatched to each approved registrants’ address, where the windrow formed at the bottom of the driveway is plowed off to the side.

Depending on the number of program registrants, it will be at least 24 hours after all the roads have been plowed before the windrow removal service is completed.

The program does not include:

  • Removing snow windrows created by sidewalk plows
  • Plowing of driveways
