Waste Prevention Action Team
We’re working to make Corvallis a waste free community. Our goals are to reach 75% recycling rate, 50% reduction in per capita weight of landfill disposal, and increase proper disposal of hazardous waste 75% by 2020.
We have launched these projects to meet those goals:
- Recycling Block Captain program and recycling handouts
- ReUse Directory downloadable matrix (new interactive version coming soon)
- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle messages for use in community newsletters and bulletins
- Prescription Bottle ReUse program in collaboration with Rice’s Pharmacy
- No Food Left Behind helps residents waste less food
- Zero Waste Group redirects to Facebook page
Fourth Wednesday of each month, 5:30–7 pm
(New member orientation 5–5:30 pm)
OSU Wilkinson Hall, Room 203, 2601 SW Orchard Ave.
