Compost Delivery – City of Peterborough

City of Peterborough compost sales and deliveries have begun for the 2013 season. The compost is made from the green waste from weekly curbside collection. The compost is fully matured, screened and meets strict provincial guidelines for home use.

Wood chips are also available to purchase. These woodchips are non-decorative chips, made up of a random blend of soft and hard wood, rough chipped to a non-uniform size of approximately 2 – 3 inches.

Truckload quantities of compost or woodchips can be ordered by City residents in two ways:

For City residents looking to give their garden a boost, a load of the City’s screened compost is the answer!

Smaller quantities of compost or wood chips are also available to for sale and pick-up at the Peterborough Landfill, 1260 Bensfort Road or at the Ecology Park, 2011 Ashburnham Drive.
