Snow and Ice Removal Continues

Posted January 16, 2017

City crews and equipment will be working this week to:

  • Clear catch basins in anticipation for this week’s thawing and rainfall events
  • Clear wheelchair ramps and bus stops of compacted snow and ice
  • Sweep and clear main roadways and priority routes of sand abrasives

Remove snow from catch basins and storm drains. Keeping catch basins and storm drains on your street clear of snow helps prevent flooding when snow melts. Report problems to our 24-hour service line at 604-294-7200.

Locate catch basins using the Burnaby Map:

  1. Select Layers button
  2. Expand Engineering Operations option > Infrastructure
  3. Select Storm > Catchbasin > Zoom into your street

Motorists are advised to be prepared for changing road conditions. Attention should be paid to water pooling around roadways due to forecasted rainfall this week.

Hazardous conditions, downed trees, potholes, and localized flooding can be reported to our 24-hour Emergency Dispatch at 604-294-7200. Non-emergency requests can be reported to 604-294-7460. We appreciate your patience as we work towards removing snow and ice in as many areas as possible. View Snow and Ice Control Information and Our Role as a City.

Please Review our Draft Burnaby Environmental Sustainability Strategy (ESS)!

The Environmental Sustainability Strategy (ESS) is a plan for Burnaby’s “green” future. It is the third – and completes the trilogy of – sustainable city policies, environmental, social and economic. The ESS process has been both creative and extensive. The Draft ESS report represents the work of hundreds of Burnaby representatives and stakeholders – citizens, business representatives, and non-profit organizations. Together, we have developed a draft plan intended to provide clear direction to staff and information for the public on priorities for City action. Before the ESS is submitted to Council for adoption, the City is checking in with you to see if we're on the right track, as part of our third and final phase of ESS public consultation.

For more information on the Draft ESS and the ESS process, please visit www.burnaby.ca/ess-input. We will welcome your input here and at public events throughout the city.
