Place your compostable waste in the cart for bi-weekly pick-up on the same day as your regular garbage collection. We’ll do the rest! 


When we look around the Emerald City, we see green everywhere—from our lush landscape to a community committed to keeping this place pristine. Take a look at this handy food waste guide to help you know exactly how to contribute to Eugene’s composting efforts.

We’re excited to be a part of the Love Food Not Waste program! What kind of things can go in the food waste bin?

Just as the name implies—food! Toss in your peels, bones, shells, and any other food scraps. You can even add weeds, brush, tree trimmings, and other plant matter you clear away from your building.

Note that compostable serviceware products and food-soiled paper cannot be placed in your compost container—organic materials only, please. The only exception is compostable bags and liners, as long as they’re certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI).
