What curbside collection changes will happen in Eugene?
Residents in the pilot areas will be able to put their food scraps in their current yard debris bin, instead of the garbage. Yard debris is a service already provided by garbage haulers. Yard debris carts will continue to be collected every-other-week. No other changes to your hauling services are anticipated at this time.
