Free Compost Week 2018

Feb 27, 2018

Spring is just around the corner, and it’s time to start thinking of your garden. Take advantage of Free Compost Week between March 10 and March 18, 2018 and collect one cubic metre of compost for FREE! 

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

Compost is a fantastic resource for your garden that 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 to keep your turf healthy.

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