Service
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.
These events offered neighborhood, community and nonprofit organizations funds for disposal of bulky household waste.
System overview, structure and milestones
Whether you’re at home or work, the materials you can recycle are the same. Mixed paper, plastic bottles and tubs, and metal containers and foil, are all allowed in the recycling bins together. Glass bottles and jars go in a separate “glass-only” labeled container.
Low-income and health condition related households can apply to increase their trash disposal capacity at no cost.
Disabled residential customers who are unable to carry garbage, composting, or recycling carts to the curb because of a health condition may apply for this service.
