Recycling, Composting & garbage

The City of Beaverton Solid Waste & Recycling program regulates six franchised haulers and sets rates for the collection of garbage, recycling, and yard debris from all residential and commercial customers within city limits.

Plastic bags

To reduce waste, protect the environment and conserve resources the City of Beaverton is considering a policy to restrict the use of single-use carryout plastic grocery bags. Sixteen cities around Oregon already have rules restricting the use of plastic bags including Hillsboro, Forest Grove, Lake Oswego, Milwaukie and Portland.
