Snow removal and eco-friendly ice melt
We can't keep the snow from falling, but we can minimize its effects.
Snow removal is a dirty business. Large snow removal companies generally run it as an emergency response service with the focus on clearing snow after it has accumulated.
This reactive approach to snow removal leads to dumping lots of rock salt and other environmentally damaging materials on top of snow and ice build-up to get rid of it. In Chicago, winter snow and ice are inevitable, but we approach snow removal safely by pre-treating surfaces before it snows and using eco-friendly ice melt.
Our proactive approach to snow and ice
When ice is in the forecast but not heavy snow, we will automatically service your property with eco-friendly ice melt to clear or prevent icy conditions. The ice melt we use is the only ice melt cleared for use around LEED certified buildings, making it safe for people, pets, and the environment.
Eco-friendly snow removal
We conscientiously clear walkways, sidewalks, stairways, stoops, driveways, alleyways, and parking lots. We service residential as well as commercial properties.
With each of our service packages, we will:
- Clear snow and prevent ice development
- Email service alerts and snow updates
- Provide 24-hour customer service on the dedicated Greenwise Snowline when routes are activated
- Use real-time GPS-tracked service vehicles
- Keep you posted on when our crews will be arriving at your doorstep

Zero Tolerance Package
The must-have package for many businesses, high-traffic areas, schools, apartment complexes, and many of our residential clients. We will send you monthly statements to show the charges for the previous month’s services.
This package covers you for a set number of prepaid snow clearing visits. We activate this service route after one inch of snow accumulation. We apply blizzard rates in the event of heavy snow accumulations. If you use up your pre-paid visits, we will invoice you monthly for any subsequent visits at your set per-visit rate.
This package provides all the benefits of the Value Service Package, PLUS unlimited eco-friendly snow removal visits. The Season Pass Package also covers you in blizzard conditions with no additional charges.
