The RMOW and partner organizations operate a network of facilities in Whistler for recycling, compost, yard waste and landfill waste. Whistler does not provide curbside pick-up services due to bears and other wildlife.
Reminder: Those leaving town must dispose their waste responsibly. If you cannot make it to a waste facility, call an independent waste hauling company. Not disposing waste properly can lead to conflicts with bears and other wildlife and will result in a fine to the property owner. Illegal dumping is a crime under municipal bylaws at all times and the Wildlife Act if the waste attracts wildlife.
Residents can drop off waste free of charge at two waste depots, including recycling, compost, yard waste and landfill waste. The depots are located in the Nesters and Function Junction neighborhoods. Learn more

All commercial waste, as well as residential waste that cannot be accommodated at the waste depots, must be delivered to the Waste Transfer Station in the Callaghan Valley. Learn more about accepted materials, location and fees.
