Beaverton Composts
Welcome to the Beaverton Composts Program
Did you know that each year Beaverton-area restaurants, grocery stores, commercial kitchens, manufacturers and food distributors send over seven million pounds of food waste to the landfill? Beaverton Composts is a collaboration between the City of Beaverton, garbage and recycling haulers, commercial composters and food businesses. The program offers a greener alternative that converts food scraps - vegetables, fruits, meats, bones, dairy products and bread -  into valuable, nutrient-rich compost. Join the Beaverton Composts Program and improve our earth while supporting local businesses bottom line.

Oregon Food Bank

Oregon Food Bank
 is dedicated to feeding hungry people and animals with food donations, which is even a better choice than composting! However, OFB will sometimes have spoiled food and food-soiled papers which they compost. Volunteer Coordinator, Kyle Hummel, says “just having the option and resources to compost will help impact the food bank for years to come.” Become part of the cycle!
