Here are some tips to reduce your trash! Metro’s Garbage and Recycling page is packed full of valuable information that goes beyond what gets thrown in those bins you roll out every week. Find a recycler for your stash of plastic lids, bags, old carpet, Styrofoam, cooking oil or renovation debris.

The hotline 503-234-3000 is answered during business hours by incredibly knowledgeable and informative individuals who will guide you on what can be recycled and where to take it in as few stops as possible.

What’s more? Metro also develops free programs to support neighborhoods, schools and businesses in their efforts to reduce waste and conserve resources. What a region!
