Hillsboro Food Composting Set to Begin in February 2020
Residents will receive a countertop pail in January.
The City of Hillsboro’s residential food composting program is set to begin in February 2020.
In January, your waste hauler will deliver a small countertop composting pail to your home. Each pail will include instructions on how to compost and what types of food scraps can be composted. Beginning in February 2020, you can empty food scraps from your countertop pail into your yard debris roll cart — but please don’t do so until February.
