The Water Bureau Recycles!

0 Comments

The City of Portland has set a 2015 goal to recycle 85% of the waste that would otherwise go to the landfill.

To help the City meet this goal, the Water Bureau is already recycling a wide variety of materials, including:

  • Traditional 'curbside' recyclables- plastic, paper, aluminum, tin, glass
  • Food waste
  • Yard debris
  • PVC pipe and broken hard hats
  • Scrap metal
  • Plastic tarps, barricades, bags and pallet wrap
  • Batteries
  • Electronics
  • Fluorescent lights
  • Toner cartridges
  • Soil, concrete and other horizontal construction materials

During 2009, the bureau's recycling program earned more than $90 thousand dollars in revenue from scrap metal alone. Thank you to all of the diligent recyclers at the Water Bureau for keeping materials out of the landfill.
