Compost Sales Suspended
Whitehorse – The City of Whitehorse reminds its citizens that it has temporarily suspended the sale of compost at its Waste Management Facility, due to COVID-19 concerns.
In addition, the City will temporarily suspend the collection of extra yard waste bags at the curb. Only the contents of the black and green carts will be collected.
These measures have been implemented to protect our staff as they handle household waste and organics.
The City will continue to work on ways to resume these services safely, for both the public and staff, and hopes to be able to provide further information soon.
