Scavenging By-law 2647/H&S/20 regulates scavenging at the Town of Inuvik Solid Waste Disposal Facility. The by-law provides a safe and healthy work environment for Solid Waste Disposal Facility employees, commercial disposal staff and citizens using the Inuvik Solid waste Landfill site.

Those wishing to scavenge must obtain a permit from the Town of Inuvik prior to salvaging or removing any material from the solid waste disposal facility.  Scavenging permits are free.

In addition, the following are not allowed:  

  • to break open bags of garbage while scavenging
  • to enter the landfill after regular operating hours or when the facility is closed to the public or closed for other reasons to engage in scavenging

At the Solid Waste Disposal Facility, a designated area has been identified for the disposal of recyclable items.
