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.
We can arrange delivery of compost orders over 6 cubic metres (6000 litres) to your address.
Deliveries are uncertain right now. Please call 3-1-1 at least three days in advance to confirm delivery.
The total cost includes:
For example: delivery of 20 cubic metres ($8.00 × 20 = $160.00) to White Rock ($225.00) would be $385.00 plus tax.
|Vancouver, Richmond, White Rock||$225.00|
|Surrey, New Westminster, Burnaby||$315.00|
|Langley, West Vancouver, North Vancouver||$405.00|

We mail your delivery bill at the end of the month.
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.
