Waste Management and Reduction

The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) is committed to diverting waste from the landfill. To continue to move Whistler towards its goal of zero waste, we need support from residents, visitors, public organizations and businesses.

Whistler is located in the Squamish Lillooet Regional District (SLRD) which manages solid waste for the region. In British Columbia, regional districts are required by the Environmental Management Act to develop solid waste management plans. The SLRD's solid waste management plan seeks to reduce the region's per capita waste by 67 per cent (from 1990s levels) with the overall goal of zero waste from the region.

Commercial and Strata Property Bylaw Update

In June 2017, RMOW staff will introduce a new composting bylaw to help Whistler achieve its community waste reduction and climate change targets. For more background and to stay up to date on the bylaw development process, please visit this page.
