Can I compost food waste?

As of October 30, 2017, Beaverton residents with yard debris collection service can add food scraps to their yard debris roll carts - now called a composting cart. 

Businesses may be eligible to participate in the Compost at Work program. Many businesses are already composting. The current focus is on food generating businesses like restaurants and grocery stores. If you think your business may qualify or if you have questions, please contact us at 503-526-8547 or
