Whitehorse city council awarded two new contracts at its landfill on Monday.

In a 3-2 vote, the contract for gatekeeping operations was awarded to Lanix Property Management Ltd. for a five-year period at an annual cost of $139,250.90.

Raven Recycling has run the gatehouse since 2000. Its bid of $149,777 annually was unsuccessful.

Council voted the same way to award the transfer station operations contract to General Waste Management Ltd. for a five-year period in the amount of $112,251.44 per year.

The Tle’nax T’awei Group has operated the transfer station since 2009.

Both contracts begin on Feb. 1, 2015 and end on Jan. 31, 2020.

Councillors Dave Stockdale and Betty Irwin voted against the recommendation, saying they preferred to keep the status quo for another year while issues with the recycling industry get sorted out.

Councillors Mike Gladish and Kirk Cameron were both absent from the meeting.
