Buy compost

The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) composts more than 5,000 tons of leaves collected through the city's Leaf Day program each year. Removing leaves from our streets is critical to keeping streets safe from clogged storm drains, flooded intersections, and slippery streets.
  1. Before you visit

    Please come prepared. Although our facility is outdoors and uncovered, customers visiting are required to wear face coverings throughout their visit to help keep you and our employees safe and to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.

    Visitors can expect to interact with city staff at the scale house where our store keeper will be wearing gloves and a face covering to handle your transaction.

    We only accept cash or credit card. No personal checks please.

    Please review our price list and minimums below.
