Event Recycling and Composting

Portland's numerous festivals, community events and street fairs can generate large amounts of waste. Our free technical assistance can help event planners divert waste from the landfill by increasing recycling and collecting food scraps. We'll help you each step of the way, from choosing the right containers and locating them effectively, to finding the most convenient place to drop off recycling and compost! 

View the guides and resources below, and then contact the Portland Event Recycling Program at 503-725-5147 or for assistance and more information.
