OP-T2-22: Snow and Ice Removal
Facilities & Engineering
Has the institution implemented technologies or strategies to reduce the environmental impacts of snow and ice removal?:
A brief description of the snow and ice removal program, policy, or practice:
At NSCC all our campuses are a combination of contractors services as well as in-house. Contractors are used for the parking lots and road ways and the college takes care of the building entrances, sidewalks and steps.
Many campuses use environmentally friendly ice melts for their in-house servicing. Our Cumberland Campus uses Calcium Chloride as opposed salt which is a more environmentally friendly, nontoxic option.
Our IT campus, in Halifax, has it stated in their snow and ice removal contract to use an environmentally friendly ice melt for the parking lots and roadways.
