The Town of Gander advises that winter parking restrictions are in effect from Nov. 1, 2014, up to and including April 30, 2015.
During this time, no vehicle shall be parked on any street between midnight and 8 a.m., regardless of weather conditions, nor may any vehicle be parked such as to impede or interfere with snow clearing operations at any time of the day or night, at any time of the year.
Citizens are also reminded that it is illegal to throw, sweep, shovel or place snow or ice from any private property upon any Town street or sidewalk, or such that it obstructs access to fire hydrants.
Snow clearing regulations include Sections 23-26 of Town of Gander Traffic Regulations, which are available from the Department of Municipal Works and Services at Town Hall or in PDF format by clicking here. A detailed description of the Town's snow clearing priorities and procedures can be found by clicking here. For a simpler explanation of the regulations and why we need them, read our 'Snow Clearing: Frequently Asked Questions' in PDF format by clicking here.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation in keeping our streets and sidewalks clear and safe throughout the year.

Homeowners wishing to mark driveway corners for the snow clearing season are urged to use commercially available markers topped with reflectors.
If using rebar, a large nut or similar cap should be securely fixed to the top to avoid danger of impalement should the rod become covered with snow.
Markers should be placed no closer than one metre from the concrete curb or sidewalk, so as not to interfere with snow clearing equipment.

The Town of Gander reminds residents that Garbage and Refuse Regulations require that household garbage be placed at the concrete curb no earlier than 6 a.m. and no later than 8 a.m. on your scheduled collection day. Household waste must be separated into two streams, with all recyclables placed in transparent blue bags and non-recyclable waste in transparent clear bags.
A limit of six (6) bags per household will be accepted on each scheduled collection day. Empty containers and any garbage/refuse not collected under these regulations must be removed from the curb before 8:30 p.m. the same day.
Please heed the following guidelines for safe disposal of hazardous items:
• Needles must be in a container such as steel or heavy plastic that will prevent accidental puncture to those collecting it.
• Broken glass should be placed in a separate container and marked as such.
• Hot coals/ashes must not be put out for collection.
