No parking on residential streets throughout the year from 2 to 6 a.m. unless you have an on-street parking exception from the Town.

The Town maintains roadways and provides a parking exception if you need to park on the street for more than five hours or overnight between the hours of 2 and 6 a.m.


Collect and bag fallen leaves, while keeping catch basins (storm drain on side of road) clear of leaves to avoid flooding.

Halton Region collects yard waste (leaves, yard trimmings, bundled brush, etc.) from the first week of April to mid-December on the same day as garbage collection, in urban areas only. Learn more at halton.ca/waste.


Clear snow and ice from your home’s sidewalks, driveways and windrow (pile of snow left by the plows) without putting snow on the road.
