Provide the call attendant with the information requested

Be prepared to record your tracking ID

Bring your damaged goods to the WMF

Provide the scale attendant at the WMF with your tracking ID

Temporary Storage

Residents in need of temporary storage, while they make repairs for their flooding damage, can use SeaCan storage. Residents are required to call 306-445-1700 to obtain a street use permit. The street use fee has been waived for residents who experienced flooding because of the heavy rains. The street use permit is required so the City can provide this information to emergency services, so they are aware of these obstructions. SeaCans on the street without a street use permit will be ticketed.
