The City of Yellowknife invites residents to a Compost Sale on May 25 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Solid Waste Facility on Highway 4 (extension of 48 Street from downtown), to pick up black gold compost for your gardening needs.

The cost of the compost is $5 per 20 liter pail, with a maximum of 10 pails per order.  For larger orders, please contact the Solid Waste Facility by emailing swfinfo@yellowknife.ca or calling (867) 669-3406 to set up an appointment. Sales are cash only. Residents are asked to report to the gatehouse and bring their own container.

Since its start in 2014, the Yellowknife Centralized Compost Program has seen a steady increase in the amount of organics being collected and processed into compost.
