Description & Services
Description A windrow is the snow left at the end of a driveway after a snow plow has cleared a road. The Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program is available to seniors (65 years or older) and people with physical disabilities living in Mississauga who would like assistance to clear space in their windrow. 
 
Participants will receive windrow clearing services after roads are plowed throughout the winter. A space of about 3 m (10 ft) wide will be cleared to allow space for one car to pass.  
 
The cost of the program is $200. This amount is non-refundable. Some residents may be eligible to participate in the program free of charge if they meet financial assistance criteria. 
 
Participation is available to 300 residents on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications are accepted between August and November each year for the upcoming winter. For specific application dates, eligibility requirements and financial assistance criteria, visit www.mississauga.ca/snow.
