The Village of Haines Junction strongly encourages all residents to consider composting. Compost removes up to 40% from the household waste stream. If you have no use for finished compost, consider collecting it to give to a neighbour who composts.
Compost can also be deposited at the Haines Junction landfill in the metal container adjacent to the metal compactor for residual household garbage. Compostables can include all fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grounds and filters, tea leaves and tea bags, paper towels, kleenex, wax paper, and garden and lawn clippings.
