Welcome to the Love Food Not Waste Program

 Love Food Not Waste Eugene businesses turn food waste into compost and crops   Did you know that each year Eugene puts over 40 million pounds of food waste in the local landfill? Want to do something about it? We did. That is why local garbage haulers, commercial composters, the City of Eugene and area businesses teamed up to make sure that food scraps turn into valuable compost instead of take up space in our landfill. Now it is your turn to do something. Join the Love Food Not Waste campaign and improve our earth while supporting local businesses' bottom line. Let’s Grow!
