Resort Info
Whistler Solid Waste Bylaws

The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) is beginning enforcement of its solid waste bylaw by imposing fines to businesses who do not:

  • collect and divert food waste, no longer accepted in garbage bins;
  • implement three-stream waste collection (recycling, compost, and garbage); and
  • prevent contamination of recycling and organic waste.

Whistler’s solid waste bylaw updates support Whistler’s mission of achieving zero waste. Separating organics, which include food scraps, compostable materials, and even yard waste, is one way of keeping waste out of landfill, which is costly to the community and environment.

Any fines imposed on the Clock Tower Resort by the RMOW will soon be passed on to the guests in the form of a garbage fee.

Sport Equipment

Due to the small size of the units and the narrowness of the staircase, large sport equipment (bike, ski, kayaks...) are not allowed in the units. A storage is available for a nominal fee near the front desk.

After Hour Check-In: Instructions will be posted in the lobby by the closed front desk office door.

We STRONGLY ADVISE you call the resort at (604) 932-4724 during business hours to receive specific and accurate instructions.

Location: The resort is located in the heart of Whistler Village. The restaurants and nightlife in the area can generate a high level of noise.

Resort Access: The Clock Tower does not have ground floor units. There is no elevator and you will encounter numerous stairs throughout the property.

WIFI: Complimentary WIFI is available in your condominium. 

DVD players are in each unit. You are welcome to bring your own DVD's. Currently, there are no video rental stores in Whistler.
