Service Announcement

The City is offering free compost next week, geared toward large orders for residential and commercial customers. 

The compost will be available for pickup from the compost facility, at 1765 Reservoir Road (access off Spiller Road), from Monday, Nov. 20, until Friday, Nov. 24, between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.

It will be available while supplies last, and may be extended if supplies allow.

An operator and equipment will be available on site to help load trucks and trailers. Also, there is a ramp to accommodate loading larger trucks. Please ensure all loads are covered and/or tarped prior to leaving the site.

Penticton’s compost is a safe, effective, environmentally friendly and affordable compost product that's ideal for use in top dressing, landscaping, on flower gardens, and as an additive in potting soil. Penticton compost consists of processed wastewater solids and wood chips.

For residents seeking smaller orders, the compost is also available for self loading, for free, weekly from Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. More information can be found on the City compost website at
