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?

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

Great job!
McGrath’s Fish House joined Beaverton Composts in May! Now, all their food waste is being turned into compost and energy to power homes. Assistant Manager, Megan Schwanke, says “This is a great way to better our planet and community. Plus, it’s just the right thing to do.” A big thanks goes out to their entire staff for participating.
