Portland's numerous festivals, community events and street fairs can generate large amounts of waste. Our free technical assistance can help event planners divert waste from the landfill by increasing recycling and collecting food scraps.
NOTICE: We have paused our certification program as we work on evolving the program to meet community needs. We encourage businesses to use the applications below as guides for sustainable business practices. Please contact us if you have questions or need assistance.
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.
Request assistance from a business sustainability adviser who can provide free guidance and resources to your organization around recycling, compost and waste reduction; energy and water efficiency, and sustainable transportation.
