Waste Prevention: Vision

The Vision of the Waste Prevention Action Team is that by 2030, Corvallis is a waste-free community.



Waste Prevention: Goals

Goal 1: By 2020, the recycling rate for the Corvallis community will be 75%. (The recycling rate includes cardboard, commingled materials, electronics, food waste, office paper, wood waste, and yard debris that have been recycled.)

Goal 2:  By 2020, there will be a 50% reduction in the per capita weight of landfill disposal (discards).

Goal 3: By 2020, the Corvallis community will increase proper disposal of hazardous waste by 75%.

Waste Prevention: Current Projects

Corvallis Recycling Block Captain Program: A way for Corvallis citizens to educate their neighborhood about recycling and waste prevention.

Corvallis-Area ReUse Directory: A guide to all of the organizations and businesses in our area that accept items for reuse, and what they each accept.

Faith Communities Project: Outreach to local faith communities to help educate their congregations about waste prevention.
