Wastewater Compost

Penticton’s compost is the product of our innovative wastewater recycling program. It’s 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.
