Snow Storage Site
Closing for Season April 10
The Snow Storage Site will be closed for the 2017-18 winter season on Tuesday, April 10 at 12 p.m.
The long-range forecast is showing above zero temperatures starting April 10 and beyond, therefore we are anticipating site conditions will deteriorate rapidly after that date.
The City of Regina’s Snow Storage Site is located at the south west corner of Fleet Street and McDonald Street/Highway 46. Users enter through the north access gate on Fleet Street. The site is open 7 days a week during the winter season as long as weather conditions and City of Regina snow removal activity permits.
All users of the Snow Storage Site are required to obtain a permit at a cost of $10 per vehicle, non-refundable. Permitting is monitored using Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) tags installed on the vehicle windshield. This RFID tag authorizes site access and provides site usage tracking for billing purposes.
Register your vehicle by completing the Snow Storage Site Use Application Form. The signed application form can be scanned and emailed to email@example.com, faxed to 306-777-6814 or delivered in person to City Hall Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:45 p.m.

Site Access Payment Options
Users of the Snow Storage Site have two options to pay for their site usage:
- Prepayment of site access fees – Users prepay their account and receive a monthly statement showing the balance of funds on the account. Prepayments will only be accepted via telephone, using a credit card, by calling 306-777-7227. Once funds have been depleted, the associated RFID tag(s) are deactivated until additional funds have been placed on the account. Re-activation takes two business days and users will be denied access to the Snow Storage Site during that re-activation time.
- Application for credit (invoicing) – Users submit an Application for Credit. If credit is approved, customers receive monthly invoices showing site usage. Credit terms are detailed on the application. Application for credit does not guarantee credit approval.
Customers are responsible for tracking use-limits and account balances and it’s important to keep drivers well-informed about the total uses left after each dump. As the end of the season approaches, it’s important to consider adding funds to your account well-in advance to ensure you are not denied entry to the Site. In most cases, additional use-limits can be topped up on the previous RFID tag.
There are no registration or payment facilities at the Snow Storage Site. Access to the site will not be allowed without an active RFID tag. It may take up to 10 business days to process your application and issue your RFID tags.
