Commercial and Strata Property Bylaw Update
In June 2017, RMOW staff will introduce a new bylaw to help Whistler achieve its community waste reduction and climate change targets, as well as regional waste commitments. Over the past 18 months, staff have collected feedback from key stakeholders and are working across multiple departments to ensure that the bylaw is practical to implement and will have the intended waste-reduction effects. For more background and to stay up to date on the bylaw development process, please visit this page.

These materials must be brough directly to the Waste Transfer Station:
- Large volumes of sawdust, woodchips, and shavings
- Yard waste
- Clean wood waste
- Commerical compost
The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) composting facility in the Callaghan Valley composts biosolids from the wastewater treatment plant, residential and commercial food waste, and wood waste.
The fully enclosed composter diverts waste from the landfill, effectively treats Whistler's biosolids, provides an opportunity for businesses and residents to compost food waste, and produces a number of high quality soil amendments for sale at the Waste Transfer Station and at the Squamish Landfill.
