Whitehorse residents are doing a great job separating out their organic waste, which is turned into high-quality compost at the City of Whitehorse compost facility.
The City's compost facility has been in operation since 2008, producing a great product and defying beliefs that composting north of 60° is difficult or even impossible. When it comes to organics, Whitehorse punches above its weight with unbeatable infrastructure and it shows!
As of April 2017, the City meets the standards of the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI), which means our amazing compost is approved for use in organic farms, gardens or operations!
