Food Scraps Collection

Twenty percent of our trash is wasted food. There’s a better option to manage this waste. Collect your food scraps for composting. In six months, the food scraps will become finished compost at an industrial compost facility. The finished compost is used in gardens, landscaping and construction projects. It can help soil hold more water and nutrients, support more living organisms, help control erosion and stormwater runoff, and much more. Get started today.

Residents can bring their food scraps to a Washington County collection site for composting. A new option, food scraps pickup is now available to select communities in Washington County.
