Transfer Station

Transfer Station , formerly known as the dump.

The disposal of waste is always a problem in a small, relatively isolated community ; not however in Tagish. The Department of Community Services manages a transfer station where residents can deposit domestic garbage, waste construction materials, tires, scrap metal ( e.g cars, refrigerators, etc.), e-waste and brush.There is also provision for the storage of toxic products.

Much of this is then transferred  to the large waste facility in Whitehorse. Scrap metal is compacted and on a regular basis, shipped south. The transfer station is situated on Reid Road and is open year round on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 12 noon to 5pm and  on Saturday's and Sunday from 9 am until 5pm.  There is no access outside the open hours.
