Compost Sales

Bagged compost is now available for the 2024 growing season!

Visit the Waste Management Facility (WMF) to purchase compost. The WMF is about six kilometres north of downtown, just off the Alaska Highway. Find the WMF turn-off on Google Maps.

  • Bagged compost is available for pick-up weekdays from 8 am to 5 pm, and weekends from 9 am to 5 pm.

The City offers two formats for compost to meet your needs:

  • Bagged compost for small-scale garden projects
  • Bulk compost for bigger projects such as landscaping and agriculture (available later in the spring)

We have two types of bulk compost available:

  • Compost
  • Mixed compost (blend of compost + sand)

Which product do I need? What’s the difference between compost and mixed compost?

  • Compost product is ideal for adding to existing soil to condition and add nutrients.
  • Mixed compost (blend of compost and sand) is ideal for empty garden boxes, new gardens, and lawn applications. Vegetable and flower gardeners sometimes add peat moss to the blended product too.

Bulk compost pick-ups must be scheduled by calling 867-668-8350 ext. 4. Bulk compost will be available later this spring. We’ll update you here, and on social media.

The City’s compost facility has been producing a superior product and defying beliefs that composting north of 60° is difficult or even impossible. Our compost meets the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) standard, making it approved for use in organic operations.

Note: A friendly reminder that what you feed your Green Cart helps us produce our OMRI-certified compost! Please keep contaminants out!
