Chatham’s snow removal contract calls for walks and drives to be cleared after 2 inch snowfall. There are buckets of ice melt pellets placed in strategic areas throughout Chatham for your convenience.
To achieve best results use the container provided to toss a thin layer of pellets over the walks or steps. One 8 ounce cup will cover 20 square feet.
Manufacturers advise that prolonged exposure to calcium chloride pellets can irritate pets feet. Prolonged exposure = hours at a time. After walking pets outside in winter owners should clean and check their pets feet for any pellets that may have stuck in the folds of their paws.
