Winter Weather Alert

January 12, 2024

Dear Valued Customers and Partners, With weather conditions rapidly changing through the country, RTS Canada asks that you help us maintain a safe and effective environment for our drivers. As a reminder, please refrain from piling snow or ice near bins, enclosures, or compactors, and ensure the mobility of bins by clearing their wheels.

Weather Conditions:

  • British Columbia – Extreme temperatures and icy road conditions with snow. Vehicles in this area are not equipped for these road conditions.
  • Alberta – Extreme freezing temperatures and snow, causing mechanical issues delaying trucks going out.
  • Ontario – Snow, rain, wind gusts over the next 24 hours starting Friday evening.
  • Quebec – Snow is expected Saturday with wind gusts on Sunday.
  • Atlantic Canada – Snow storm expected Saturday for New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI and Newfoundland.


Winter Weather & Extreme Cold Alert: Weather conditions are changing rapidly throughout the country, with snow, rain and wind gusts expected, please make sure the area leading up to and around the bins or enclosure are shoveled and heavily salted/sanded, to ensure there are no further delays with services when drivers are able to be on the road safely.

Our commitment to safety extends to your site and our service personnel. To facilitate this:
  • Snow Clearance: Keep a 20×20 space around enclosures free of snow and ice.
  • Salting Pathways: Salt the cleared spaces and paths leading to containers.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us via our Support Desk.
