HOW MUCH DOES SNOW REMOVAL COST IN CALGARY AND EDMONTON?
Alberta snowfalls are the unexpected-expected part of the winters. Often surprising residents early in the fall season leaving many property owners scrambling to figure out their options before the next snowfall.
The cost of snow removal varies and is typically dependent on the size of the property being plowed and the types of snow clearing equipment used. The average cost of commercial snow removal in the province can run between $125 -$200 dollars an hour and there can be additional charges for ice melters, gravel applications and other add-ons. Usually getting a regular service booked with a local snow removal company is the best bet as there can be discounted pricing within a snow removal contract.

SNOW CLEARING SAFETY
There are city bylaws in both Calgary and Edmonton for the removal of snow off public sidewalks in a reasonable amount of time, or 24 hours after a snowfall. The onus is on the property owner to keep the public sidewalks safe for users, the municipality can fine property owners if the snow is not removed. The City of Calgary; however, provides a first-come, first-served salted-gravel mixture for its residents to use free of charge at various sandbox locations around the city.
Business and property owners should make it a priority to have the snow cleared from their properties to reduce the risk of injury to residents, customers and even the employees. Ideally the snow should be removed before workers arrive to work and when business operations start for the day. Plowing the snow from parking lots allows visitors to access the property, park easily and enter the building safely.
