A New York City garbage truck outfitted with a plow blade will rumble down Ottawa streets as a test of its snow-clearing capabilities during a Canadian winter.

The city last year indicated it would try creative ways for moving snow off the roads, including a pilot project using a garbage truck.Coun. Keith Egli, chair of council’s transportation committee, said the truck should arrive in Ottawa within weeks after the city finalizes the arrangement with New York. There will be a short training period with staff.
