New community gardens can get free compost. Find out how!
The City of Vancouver sells nutrient-rich compost soil for your garden at the Vancouver Landfill in Delta.
Our compost soil is produced on-site from the yard and garden waste we collect from Vancouver homes.
Visit our residential drop-off area with your own containers. You can use our shovels and loader (available daily, 7:30am to 4:45pm).
Pay at the landfill weigh scales using cash, debit, cheque, or credit card.
Photo ID is needed to pay by cheque and credit card.
Personal cheques must be in your own name and have a preprinted name and address.
The City can arrange delivery of compost orders over 6 cubic metres (6000 litres) to your address. Delivery charges depend on the amount of compost you order and your delivery location.
Below are the rates for delivery. The total cost is a combination of the desination and the amount of compost.
For example: delivery of 20 cubic metres ($8.00 x 20 = $160.00) to White Rock ($225.00) would be $385.00 plus tax.
A bill for delivery will be mailed to you at the end of the month.
|Vancouver, Richmond, White Rock||$225.00|
|Surrey, New Westminster, Burnaby||$315.00|
|Langley, West Vancouver, North Vancouver||$405.00|
|Belcarra, Anmore, Port Moody, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge||$495.00|
You must send us a completed, signed damage waiver before we deliver the compost soil to your property. Fax the completed waiver to 604-606-2724.
