Snow Storage

Fredericton manages a City Snow Storage Facility off of Wallace Avenue. This is a designated place where city crews, private companies, and contractors can dump the snow cleared from roads, sidewalks, driveways, and parking lots throughout the city.

There is a registration fee of $300 for each company hauling to the snow storage facility, as well as a $100 per truck fee for each truck that is registered to haul snow. These fees cover the costs that the City of Fredericton incurs to maintain the snow storage facility; ensuring it is acceptable to adjacent property owners and meets all environmental regulations.

For full snow storage guidelines, see “Related Documents” at right.

Snow Storage Guidelines:

  • The snow storage facility is divided in two by a berm.
  • Contractors dump furthest away from entrance.
  • City crews dump closest to entrance.
  • Contractors are responsible to arrange for the pushing back of ALL snow they dump.
  • Snow should be pushed in a northerly direction away from the river ONLY.
  • Do NOT push snow to the west into the adjacent stream/brook.
  • Dump only in designated areas.
  • Contractors are responsible for pushing back their own snow immediately after dumping.
