Winter Maintenance Policy

Please review the current copy of the Winter Maintenance Policy by clicking this link

The City of Armstrong is preparing for snow clearing activities and needs your help to ensure snow removal is completed quickly and effectively: 

  • Street Parking: Do not park on any City streets during a snowfall. Please wait until after all snow clearing activities are completed. 
  • Snow Removal: Do not take the snow from your driveway or sidewalk and push it onto the public portion of the roadway. The extra piles of snow can create a driving hazard for passing motorists. 
  • Placement of Garbage & Recycling Containers: Please place your garbage and recycling containers off the street or sidewalk. 

Thank you for your cooperation this winter. 

Fall Pruning & Yard Waste Pickup is now complete. 

Materials that did not meet the requirements for bundling or bagging were not picked up.

There is year round free residential yard waste drop off at all Regional Recycling and Disposal Facilities. Contact the Regional District of North Okanagan for more information: 250-550-3700, or visit their website at
