Curbside Composting

NOW AVAILABLE for all Eugene and Springfield Yard Debris Customers!

Those who have Sanipac’s residential garbage service now have the option to put food waste in their yard debris bin instead of in the garbage! We toss more than 40 million pounds of food into local landfills each year and half of this waste comes from homes. Composting waste allows us to use this material for something useful while also reducing harmful greenhouse emissions.

Inside the city limits of Veneta, we offer a grey 95 gallon yard debris cart picked up on an every other week schedule. This happens on the opposite pickup week as the recycling with the exception of April, May and November. During those months, the yard debris is picked up weekly.

This mixed food waste and yard debris pickup will be turned into nutrient-rich compost by local processors.
