Master Recycler Newsletter—June 2016

We have an important unsung hero helping our region fight climate change and turn food scraps into a renewable resource: Bacteria!

Community Collection Events

Portland Community Collection Events are organized to offer a wide range of Portland residents, including seniors and people with disabilities, with proper disposal of household bulky waste and prioritize and promote both recycling and reuse. Master Recyclers also help at recycling collection events for those hard to recycle items like computers, shredded paper and non-curbside plastics throughout the region. You can act as a greeter, train other volunteers or help plan the event for your payback hours at these community events.
