Our compost program started in October 2017 and we're looking for your feedback. Please help us out by taking our survey and telling us why or why not you're including the food in your compost cart at home. Prize winners will be drawn later in the summer!
Beaverton residents with yard debris collection service can add food scraps to their yard debris roll cart - now called a composting roll cart. Composting food scraps with yard debris creates nutrient-rich fertilizer and reduces our impact on the environment.
Yard debris and food scraps can be put into your composting roll cart together.
Materials are picked up on your normal weekly service day.
Be careful not to pack it tightly - contents must fall freely from your roll cart.
Three easy steps
Place your kitchen compost pail in a convenient location in your kitchen.
Include the food! Toss all food scraps and plate scrapings into your kitchen pail.
Empty your kitchen pail into your food and yard debris (composting) roll cart. Place your roll cart at the curb for normal pick up.
