Container Sizes & Costs
We offer a variety of container sizes to meet your business’ unique needs.
Olympia commercial organics customers are set up with permanent containers, meaning businesses are set up on regularly scheduled pick-up days.
Organics Carts & Dumpsters
We provide carts or dumpsters to businesses for weekly collection of organics.

Organics Compactors & Drop Boxes
If your business uses a compactor or drop box to collect organics, we will haul your container at least once per week (but it can be collected more often).
|compactors & drop boxes||per haul||tipping fee|
|10 - 30 yard containers||$177.41||$34 per ton|
- How Often Can I Get My Dumpster Emptied?
Organics carts and dumpsters are collected weekly on Mondays. Compactors and drop boxes are collected at least once per week but can be collected as many times per week as requested.
- Do I Need Regular Collection for Organics?
All commercial organics customers who put food waste and food-soiled paper into their collection container must be set up on at least weekly service. If you only have yard debris or wood debris, on-call organics containers might be another option. On-call organics pricing depends upon container size and frequency of pick up; view the On-call Container Rates .
- What Material Can I Put in Organics?
All food scraps, food-soiled paper, yard debris and more. Learn more about What is Accepted in Organics and find printable materials to help your business divert the most organic material.
- How Soon Can I Start Service?
Most businesses can start commercial organics service within two weeks.
