Snow clearing tips:
- Clear the snow in the morning before people start walking and compacting the snow.
- Do not use water!
- Be a good neighbour, offer to clear neighbours’ paths.

- Use a coarse cheap sand, such as builder’s sand, cat litter, or cinders. Remember to sweep the pavement after the thaw has occurred.
