Whitehorse – Residents are advised that bagged compost is sold out at the Waste Management Facility (WMF), and bulk compost sales are delayed until the beginning of June.
Technical difficulties at the testing laboratory have led to delays in processing our samples. The City cannot sell compost until the results from the laboratory have returned.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
