Bend Garbage Companies Offering Food Waste Recycling

BEND, OR -- The Cascade Disposal and Bend Garbage Companies are offering to recyle food waste and turn it into something good for the garden. Cascade's Community Outreach Coordinator, Patricia Williams, says the recycling of the waste is for customers who have yard debris service. "We are taking everything. Bones, meat, dairy, bread, processed and cooked foods. All of that can go into the yard debris container," Williams said.  The food waste will be taken to Deschutes Recycling by Knott Landfill where it will turn into compost in 90 days. Williams says 2-gallon buckets are available to customers of Cascade Disposal and Bend Garbage. The buckets can be placed in the kitchen and when the bucket is full it can be dropped in the yard debris container.
