Recycling Guide

Recycle Right!

Please make sure to include only the correct materials in your curbside recycling. Reducing contamination is imperative for the longevity and success of recycling in Oregon. If you’re in doubt, throw it out. Want to make recycling in your office or facility even easier? Ask about our deskside recycling boxes!

How can I save money on my service?

The best way to save money on services is to use a garbage receptacle correctly sized for your needs. If you are not filling your garbage cart or container each week or are overfilling it consistently, it may be cost-effective to choose garbage receptacle more appropriately sized for your service needs. Contact our office for information on the services available to you.

Will my collection be impacted by inclement weather?

Will my collection be impacted by inclement weather?

When dealing with inclement weather, safety is our priority. The safety of our employees is important to us, and we prioritize their well-being whether they're behind the wheels of our trucks or traveling to and from work. Your safety is also important to us, and we may alter our collection services during inclement weather if we determine regular procedures may pose a danger to people or property. When roads are covered in snow and ice, for instance, it may be difficult for our trucks to safely stop and start at every home. If we make the decision to alter our collection services in any way due to weather, we will do our best to notify all customers of the change.
