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 75% by 2020.
We have launched these projects to meet those goals:
- Recycling Block Captain program and recycling handouts
- ReUse Directory
- 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
The Waste Prevention Action Team has developed some ambitious goals. Learn more about our vision, goals, strategies and actions.
