The FreeGarden Earth backyard composter comes as a solid unit and cannot be disassembled into multiple pieces. We recommend that you measure the space available in your vehicle first before going to the Transfer Station to purchase a unit.
$25 (taxes included), payable by credit card, debit card, cheque, or cash.
Where to buy a composter
Pick up and pay for your garden composter at the Vancouver South Transfer Station at 377 West Kent Avenue North.
- Bring your driver’s licence, or a utility bill that shows you live in Vancouver.
- Approach the station from the east on Kent Avenue. Use the weigh scale line up. Left turns are not allowed if you come from the west.
There is a limit of three composters per household.
