Oregon's love of food runs deep. The evidence is all around us—in restaurants, diners and cafes that use local, fresh ingredients and create the distinctive cuisine that Oregon is known for. But to show that we truly cherish food, we have a responsibility to stop wasting it!
Reducing food waste protects Oregon's natural resources for future generations, and can help your bottom line. Join Food Waste Stops with Me and take action to reduce food waste.
Washington County Solid Waste & Recycling provides technical assistance and support to businesses that want to get all the value from food, whether it's by serving it, rescuing it for others who need it, or collecting the scraps to create compost and other valuable products. Our services are available to all businesses in Washington County at no charge, and everything is customized to meet your business' specific needs.
Food Waste Stops with Me is a collaboration between Metro, Oregon Restaurant & Lodging Association, Oregon's Department of Environmental Quality, as well as city and county governments, to support foodservice businesses in reducing food waste.
