Citizens of Whitehorse are doing a great job separating out their organic waste, which is turned into compost at the City of Whitehorse compost facility.
The City's compost facility has been in operation since 2008, producing quality 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 compost is listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI). What that means for City compost users is that the high quality City compost is listed for use in organic crops, gardens or operations!
