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.

Hats Off Day

Hats Off Day

Saturday, June 4, 2016 
9:30 AM – 4:00 PM

Parade 10:00 AM
Street Festival 11:00 AM

Hats Off Day takes place along Hastings Street between Boundary Road and Gamma Avenue. Join us as our streets get packed with families, friends, neighbours, and merchants! The parade begins at 10:00 AM along Hastings Street from Beta Avenue to Boundary Road and the street festival kicks off at 11:00 AM with lots of music, food and kids activities.

Hats Off Day is when Heights merchants "take their hats off" to their community and their customers, and the entire Heights community celebrates together. It's a huge, one-day extravaganza featuring a colourful main-street style parade with real local flavour, and a big street party afterwards.

Hats Off Day has been voted "Burnaby's Best Festival" by Burnaby Now readers every year since 2005!
