Snow Dumping SIte. 2018
Areas having much snow, the snow accumulates around houses. These things generate many kinds of feelings for the residents there. That is why we must remove snow to somewhere like riverside or vacant lot. It’s called “snow dumping site” or “snow removal site”.
Companies with snow removal equipment offer to provide services to remove it. The machine put the snow into dump trucks and transport it to the sites. The piles of snow in front our houses grow higher and make mountains of snow. Those suddenly appear in winter and disappear in spring.
