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.
Promote your workplace's commitment to sustainability and the community by becoming Sustainability at Work certified. Certification is free for all businesses, nonprofits, and government workplaces located in Multnomah County, within Portland City limits.
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.
