The Metropolitan Wastewater Management Commission (MWMC) is preparing to harvest Management Unit 3 (MU3) on its Biocycle Farm in 2021. The Biocycle Farm is a 400-acre plantation of poplar trees on agricultural land in north Eugene.

The poplars grow rapidly by consuming nutrients in biosolids, making the Biocycle Farm a cost-effective method for recycling a byproduct of the wastewater treatment process. The trees are managed as an agricultural crop, with a growth period of up to 12 years, and then harvested and sold in the marketplace to offset operating costs for the farm, as well as provide a renewable resource for our community.
