Why does my driveway sometimes get “plowed in” when a snow plow truck passes?
The Village plows are designed to direct the snow to the curb side of the plow blade. Side delivery plows are the fastest and most efficient means available to remove snow from the streets. As a result, snow is discharged along the length of the curb, the parkways, and the private driveway areas. Orland Park has almost 20,000 thousand private driveways abutting Village streets, the cleaning of which is the responsibility of the property owner.

Personnel and equipment limitations prohibit the Village from responding to routine requests to remove snow from private driveways. We strongly recommend that you delay clearing your driveway until the snow plows have cleaned the majority of your street. Village ordinances prohibit the discharge of snow onto the Village streets. This illegally placed snow may freeze or become compacted and create a safety hazard for you and motorists.
