Used Material Yard Licence
A Used Material Yard means a place where used materials are stored out of doors.
The application form is available on-line. You can also contact Community By-Law Enforcement Services to request an application by mail, or visit Community By-Law Enforcement Services and pick up the application in person.
Upon application, Community By-Law Enforcement Services will coordinate the following:
- Verification from a City employee authorized to administer and enforce the Winnipeg Zoning By-law or the Downtown Winnipeg Zoning By-law that operation of the business on the premises for which the Licence is sought is permitted under one of those two zoning by-laws
- Verification from an individual authorized to administer and enforce the Neighbourhood Liveability By-law that the operation of the used material yard on the premises proposed would not violate that By-law
- Verification from the Fire Paramedic Chief or delegate that the operation of the business on the proposed premises meets the requirements of the Fire Prevention By-law, the Manitoba Fire Code and other regulatory requirements relating to fire safety
Fees are not permitted to be pro-rated or reduced, however, a recent Council approved amendment to the Doing Business in Winnipeg By-law now allows annual licences to be taken at any time of the year. Licences are valid for one year from date of purchase.
Applicants may be required to provide suitable identification.
