Commercial Food Waste Collection

LFNW Business participant

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!
