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+ and persons with disabilities living within Milton boundaries. The program begins on Dec. 1 (of the application year) and concludes on March 31.

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 36 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

Fee assistance

Eligibility for fee exemption is based on LICO-BT, as established by Statistics Canada. To qualify, applicants must:
  • Have a total gross household income below the LICO-BT
  • Provide proof of annual income for all adults in the household
 The following information will be required for those seeking fee exemption:
  • Proof of annual income includes most recent Canada Revenue Agency Notice of Assessment, Ontario Works (OW) or Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) income statement
  • Should the above not be available, two consecutive current paystubs will be requested

In the event that the applicant is a refugee or landed immigrant within one year of the date of application, a copy of the Confirmation of Permanent Residence or Immigration Papers issue by the Government of Canada will serve in place of proof of income. 

Please note that registrants must sign that no able-bodied person under the age of 65 is living at the residence.
