Backyard Composting

Delta's Composting Program

Delta provides FREE backyard composting workshops for residents each year during the spring and summer as part of our Sustainable Workshops

Delta's Backyard Composter Program

Garden Gourmet composters are available to Delta residents for $35 including taxes and delivery. This design has a small footprint and fits neatly in tight spots. Features include a dual access, snap-shut lid, adjustable air vents and a sliding bottom door for easy harvesting of finished compost. Black coloured top and side panels absorb radiant heat for faster decomposition. The lid accommodates loads of leaves and clippings and the smaller flip-up door makes way for kitchen scraps. Composters sold by Delta are 60cm wide x 60cm deep x 91cm high.
