Snow Emergency Procedures

Your cooperation is needed during snowfall events to help the Borough keep the streets cleared and to allow emergency vehicles, pedestrians and vehicular traffic access to the roadway. The greater the snow event the more challenging the task.

Yeadon residents are requested to:

  • Not throw nor place shoveled snow into the roadway.
  • Not plow their driveways onto the road surface.
  • Not place household items in streets to reserve parking spaces
  • Remove snow from their sidewalks within 12 hours after snow storm has ended.

All vehicles must be removed from designated snow emergency streets. If vehicles are parked on posted snow emergency streets, citations will be issued per Ordinance 470.02. “All cars violating the ordinance will be ticketed and towed at owner’s expense” according to Ordinance No. 465.01 (a)(4).

After the streets are plowed and salted, please do not throw the snow back into the roadway. This creates a hazardous situation. Citations will be issued for non-compliance.

Under Borough Ordinance 680.04, Yeadon residents are required to remove snow and other debris from their sidewalks within 12 hours after the storm has subsided. Snow should be placed in the front or side yard of the home and not in the street as it hampers the ability of the snow plows to continue the clean-up.

As a reminder to Borough residents, it is against the law to mark and/or reserve parking spaces with household items such as lawn chairs, trash cans and the like.

The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) works around the clock during a declared snow emergency. Anyone having a non-emergency are urged to call 610-623-2392 to report the problem. The OEM is responsible for supplying needed resources to emergency responders, monitor the activity during the storm and supports the various departments during the emergency.

Senior Citizen Services are provided for snow removal and is available to residents ages 62 and up. If this service is needed, please call the Office of Emergency Management at 610-623-2392 to apply for snow clean up.

Thank you for your cooperation and compliance with and following the ordinances, rules and regulations of the Borough.
