Find out about tipping fees in rural communities

Introduction of fees

Tipping fees came into effect in the areas around Whitehorse on August 1, 2020.

All facilities will eventually have tipping fees. 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, such as a desk or couch $10 per item
Large appliances without refrigerant, such as dishwashers, stoves, driers $15 per item
Large appliances with refrigerant, such as fridges, freezers or air conditioners $40 per item
Free store items, excluding clothing $1 per bag
