We are proud of our planet protecting products.

Looking for…

At Fundy Compost we are committed to protecting the environment for future generations.


By using our waste as a resource we create affordable:
High Quality Compost, Topsoil, Lawn Top Dressing and Mulch.

We are also happy to provide our customers with various gravels, and stone products, along with knowledgeable, personal service. We can load your pickup trucks or trailers with a small loader or skidsteer.


Fundy Compost is proud to keep thousands of metric tonnes of material out of the landfill every year.  We are an integral part of the composting/recycling efforts which make Nova Scotia a leader in the field. One of the goals of composting is to eliminate methane production (a highly aggressive greenhouse gas) in landfills.


We have the distinction of being the ONLY Nova Scotian facility to retain a Soil Scientist, and the second facility to open after Nova Scotia Dept. of the Environment’s regulations curbed indiscriminate dumping in 1994.

Volume discounts are available starting at full tandem loads for many of our products. Commercial users, such as landscapers or farmers, should call us at (902) 673-3020, or (902) 986-1610 for wholesale pricing and credit applications.

“The year before our chard was about a foot high – very poor.
Then we added two inches of Fundy Compost last year and BAM!……What a garden!
The chard was delicious right up to freeze up. As well as everything else.”
