Convenient Compost Collection in Inuvik

Help reduce your organic wastes, create soil, and support the Inuvik Community Greenhouse!

How does it work? We will come collect your organic waste once a week, every two weeks or once a month – you decide. You will get a reminder email on Monday to tell you to put your compost outside on Tuesday morning. You choose how – a bag, box or container. If you want the container returned, just put your name/address on the outside and we will rinse and return it.   Any organic material (except meat, oil or animal waste) generally can be composted.

How much does it cost? Pick up is prepaid at $5 per pick up. Book 6 or more pick ups in advance, and get 10% off! EMT accepted to

You have the choice of weekly, biweekly or monthly. Biweekly is our recommended amount.
1-5 pick ups prepaid = $5/pick up
6 pick ups (eg. 3 months on biweekly service) = $27
10 pick ups (eg. 5 months on biweekly service) = $45
