Free Food Scraps Compost Collection

CompostThe City offers food scraps composting collection carts for businesses at no additional cost as part of garbage service.

All food, including meat, cheese and bones, as well as un-coated paper products, like napkins and paper towels can be placed in organics composting carts.

City staff work directly with businesses, schools, and apartment complexes to set up and maintain free organics composting service. 

Each participant may have up to three 64-gallon organics composting carts serviced twice a week at no additional charge. After each servicing carts are lined with a new compostable bag so carts stay clean. Collected materials are composted locally for landscaping and gardening.  

The food scraps composting program has been successfully running in Redmond for over 16 years. Currently there are 117 businesses, 62 apartments and condominium properties, 12 schools and 9 government buildings participating in the program.

Joining is easy! To join send in a request for service or call 425-556-2900 extension 7 and a City representative will reach out to get you started. You will receive onsite training and materials like posters and kitchen food scraps bins to help your program be successful!
