The Draft 2025 Business Organics Management Areas (BOMA) map identifies the organics collection areas that are in effect for the 2025 calendar year. Areas in blue indicate the active collection areas for 2024. Areas in orange indicate the expanded organics collection areas proposed for 2025.

A BOMA represents those parts of the state where we have determined both qualifying conditions exist:

  • Businesses have access to year-round curbside food waste and organic materials collection, and these materials are delivered to an organics management facility such as a compost facility or anaerobic digester for processing
  • Capacity exists at these facilities to accept increased volumes of organic materials from businesses

To make this determination, we are consulting with local governments, haulers, and compost facilities. We are also soliciting public comment on a preliminary draft of the 2025 BOMA map through our E-comments portal. The map will reflect what Ecology learns through this process.
