WINNIPEG — The city has collected an estimated 1,774 tonnes of debris from an early winter storm that pummelled southern Manitoba earlier this month.

The storm-related debris is being collected at the city’s 4R Winnipeg Depots, Brady Road Resource Management Facility, and the Summit Road Landfill.

“We’ve seen considerably more traffic at our designated disposal sites since the October storm event,” said Michael Gordichuk, the city’s manager of solid waste.

“We’ve had over 12,000 visits by residential customers dropping off storm-related wood debris at the 4R Winnipeg Depots and the landfill sites. We want to thank all the residents who have, and continue to safely deposit storm-related wood debris at one of the City’s designated sites.”


The debris will be processed and then reused in the form of wood chips being mixed with biosolids and street sweepings. The output will be a soil-like material the city can use in landscaping or to cap finished landfill areas.

The city is reminding residents to secure their wood debris loads while travelling to any of the designated drop-off spots.

Further information on what you can do with storm-related debris can be found on the city’s website.
