Backyard Composting


Put your yard waste into your compost to help your sustainable garden. Composting is great because it:

  • gives nutrition to your garden, lawn, and plants,
  • boosts soil structure without harsh chemicals,
  • and eliminates waste going to landfills.

Earth Machine Composter

Surrey residents can purchase the Earth Machine Back Yard Composter for $25.00. The Earth Machine Back Yard Composter dimensions are as follows:

  • 80 gallon capacity
  • 33" high
  • 33" diameter

Payment & pick up

You can pay for your composter at the Engineering Operations Works Yard, and then pick up the composter from our storage yard at 6596 144 St on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays (between 10:00am and 2:00pm).
