Did you know that each year Beaverton businesses send over 7 million pounds of food waste to the landfill? Compost at Work offers a greener alternative that converts food scraps (vegetables, fruits, meats, bones, dairy products and bread) into valuable energy and compost.
The compost program is a partnership between the garbage hauler, city and business. City staff supplies your business with free indoor collection containers, posters and training to get you started and ongoing technical assistance. The business collects their food scraps in a new outdoor container for pickup. The hauler empties the container on a weekly basis. It's that easy!
Join the Compost at Work program and do good while supporting your businesses' bottom line!
