Sandboxes are back for use by residents
Re. “What happened to sand boxes for ice?” Letters, Nov. 3
City crews have filled all 150 community sandboxes across the city early in November and continue to revisit them frequently.
Community sandboxes are a courtesy service offered by the City of Edmonton and available at participating community centres throughout Edmonton. While every attempt is made to keep sandboxes filled, the first priority of crews every season is to keep major roads and sidewalks clear of snow and ice to ensure safe driving, biking, and walking conditions.
For information on the location of community sandboxes or the always-stocked Roadway Maintenance Yards, visit edmonton.ca/communitysandboxes. If your local box needs filling, please call 311. Janet Tecklenborg, Director, Parks and Roads, City of Edmonton
