What’s the cost?

Rates for commercial food waste collection are set at approximately 20% below commercial garbage rates. By subscribing to commercial food waste collection service, businesses should be able to downsize their regular garbage container size and decrease the number of garbage pick-ups each week. The City of Eugene provides free materials and resources to participating businesses. These resources are funded through solid waste license fees and a Waste Prevention Fund grant from Lane County Waste Management. For commercial food waste collection rates, click HERE
