Free Compost Week 2017

Mar 17, 2017

Take advantage of Free Compost Week between March 18 and March 26, 2017! The craziness of this year's winter is about to be in the rear-view mirror, so it's time to get back to your garden. 

To receive one cubic metre (pickup truck-sized load) of compost for FREE, Delta residents are required to show their driver's licence, property tax notice, utility bill, or other proof or residency. Compost can be picked up from the Vancouver Landfill during Free Compost Week.

Compost is a fantastic resource for your garden. It feeds plants and helps them retain moisture. You can spread it around the base of shrubs, trees and perennials or rake it onto your lawn.

Learn more about backyard composting and Delta's Backyard Composter Program or at one of our FREE Sustainable Gardening Workshops!
