Commercial Organics / Food Scrap Collection
Welcome to Beaverton Composts!

Did you know that each year Beaverton-area restaurants, grocery stores, commercial kitchens, manufacturers and food distributors send over 7 million pounds of food waste to the landfill?

Beaverton's compost program offers a greener alternative that converts food scraps (vegetables, fruits, meats, bones, dairy products and bread) into valuable energy and compost. Commercial organics / food scrap collection is a paid service offered by your hauler. City of Beaverton staff will provide your business with free internal collection containers, posters, training and other technical assistance. Also, City staff will help identify local food donation opportunities for edible foods (bulk food items, canned and packaged items, commercially baked goods, dairy products and eggs, desserts and sweets, fresh produce, frozen goods, menu entrees and prepared items and meats) when applicable.

Join the compost program and improve our earth while supporting local businesses' bottom line! To learn more, see the links below.

Thank you to our composting participants!!!

Thai Bloom has helped divert over 22 tons of food waste from the landfill as a participant of Beaverton's compost program. “Our business composts because we realize that with the amount of people we serve, the way we handle our waste can have a big impact on the environment. We also save money on our waste disposal bills. Composting is easy, with minimal training required and very little extra labor”, says Events and Catering Manager, Jonathan Lapham.
