Foundation tracks, bus routes and multi-storey museum streets enjoy priority. Residential streets are cleared only if they are heavy with private vehicles, heavy slippery, or snow depths greater than 15 inches. An exception may be made if there is a risk of freezing once snow ridges have formed. Snow clearing is limited to making these pores achievable. During snow clearing of residential streets, it is likely that during driveways a snow drift will develop which the City of Reykjavik will not be responsible for clearing. It therefore falls to the occupants themselves to clear away snow from driveways.
Salt and sand can be found at Reykjavík City's local stations.
All vacancies are advertised on the city's website.
