Commercial Food Scrap Collection

Welcome to Compost at Work

Did you know that each year Beaverton businesses send over 7 million pounds of food waste to the landfill? Compost at Work offers a greener alternative that converts food scraps (vegetables, fruits, meats, bones, dairy products and bread) into valuable energy and compost. The compost program is a partnership between the garbage hauler, city and business. Your hauler provides commercial compost collection service at a 50% discount off the cost of garbage rates. City staff supplies your business with free indoor collection containers, posters, training and ongoing technical assistance. The business collects their food scraps in a new outdoor container for pickup. It's that easy!

Join the Compost at Work program and improve our earth while supporting local businesses' bottom line!
