The 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 by 75% by 2020.
We have launched these projects to meet those goals:
- Recycling Block Captain program and recycling handouts (see the NEW Recycling Guide!)
- ReUse Directory
- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle messages for use in community newsletters and bulletins
- Prescription Bottle ReUse program in collaboration with Rice’s Pharmacy
- NEW: No Food Left Behind – Corvallis
An Oregon DEQ grant-funded project to help Corvallis residents waste less food
Fourth Wednesday of each month, 5:30 pm–7:00 pm
(New members arrive early for an orientation, 5:00 pm–5:30 pm)
New Morning Bakery, 219 SW 2nd Street in downtown Corvallis
