When will fees be introduced?

Tipping fees will come into effect on August 1, 2020.

The following waste facilities will be the first to get tipping fees:

  • Tagish
  • Deep Creek
  • Mount Lorne
  • Carcross
  • Marsh Lake

All facilities except Beaver Creek and Old Crow will have tipping fees by April 2021. We plan to introduce tipping fees at Beaver Creek and Old Crow by 2022. 

Everyone will pay a similar cost for the same service.

How much will fees cost?

Tipping fees will be based on fees at the Whitehorse dump. For example:

Household garbage $1 per bag
Bulky items like a desk or couch $10 per item
Large applicances wiithout refrigerant, like dishwashers, stoves, driers $15 per item
Large appliances with refrigerant, like fridges, freezers or air conditioners $40 per item
Free store items, excluding clothing $1 per bag
