We’re working to make Corvallis a waste free community that fosters behaviors to reduce consumption of material goods.
Our community goals: The recycling rate for the Corvallis community will be 50%, there will be a year-to-year reduction in the per capita weight of landfill disposal (discards), and there will be a year-to-year increase of proper disposal of hazardous waste, all by 2025.
