URGENT: Snow Windrow Removal – Oakville Applicants Must Register Before November 23rd

Information posted November 17, 2012

A snow windrow is the pile of snow that is left at the end of driveways after a snow plow has cleared the road. This can be very difficult to remove, especially for seniors and those with disabilities.

The Town of Oakville together with Links2Care has developed a program to help these individuals BUT there is only one week left to register for this program. Registration closes on November 23rd.

There is a non-refundable fee for the winter season of $82.50 plus HST ($92.23)

The program runs December 1, 2012 to March 31, 2013.

Eligible Oakville residents include:

  • Seniors 65 years of age or older (proof of age is required)
  • Persons with a physical disability (a doctor’s note is required)

Applicants must register in person at:

Links2Care, 250 Wyecroft Road, Unit #2, Oakville

Registrants will also need to sign a declaration stating that no able-bodied person under the age of 65 is living at their residence.

You can pick up a Registration form at;
