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.

Park Donations

For more information, please contact Burnaby Parks & Recreation at 604-294-7154.

Types of Donations in Burnaby Parks

There are unlimited reasons why any one person, group or business might choose to imprint themselves into the texture of Burnaby’s natural environment. Perhaps to commemorate a great occasion or achievement. Or to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or loved one. Whatever the case, these gifts create lasting personal memories in a favourite green space while increasing the beauty, history and/or user-friendliness of our parks. After all, there’s no place like nature to feel close to what matters most in life.

What kind of "presents" could I give?

Listed here are a series of basic, heritage-oriented projects and existing structures that could serve as a focus for community donations. These items are on the “dream list” for Burnaby Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services as we make plans for the future. All pertain specifically to parks, though our recreation centres, pools, arenas, sports facilities, the museum and arts centre are all worthwhile recipients for donations.

Bottom line: We’re open to your ideas and suggestions, so please feel free to call.

Will my "present" be recognized?

Wherever possible a small bronze recognition plaque will be used to identify the contributor or contributing organization. A certificate of appreciation from the Parks Commission will be issued. And, of course, a tax deductible receipt in the amount of the gift will also be issued.
