Are you as frustrated as I was trying to get rid of the ice and snow on your sidewalks and driveways because of all this extreme weather we are having along with driving around to find a home center that even has any sand or salt left to make your property safe? I wanted to pass on some helpful information to residents in the Oshawa and Clarington areas regarding where to get FREE sand and salt mixture. The more people that I speak with the more people I find do not know about this offer that is made available to residents of Oshawa and Clarington. This FREE sand and salt mixture is available in the parking lots of the Oshawa and Clarington road maintenance yards. The Oshawa yard is located at Ritson Rd. South and Wolf and the Clarington yard is on the north side of Taunton Rd. in Hampton. Just bring your own shovel and a bucket. This is a benefit that is provided by both the cities of Oshawa and Clarington to be used by their home owners. I use it and find that it not only melts the ice but it also makes it safe for both you and pedestrians to walk on. Please give it a try and let me know how it works out for you.
