Equity and Diversity in Waste Collection

The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) is directed to achieve a vision of racial equity and use an equity lens for all of its work via the Citywide Racial Equity Goals and Strategies and the BPS Strategic Plan.  City Council has directed BPS to focus on increasing participation of women and minority workers and reducing barriers to economic opportunities for minority-owned and woman-owned companies.. 

BPS has developed a Waste Equity Workplan that identifies the work BPS will undertake to advance equity and diversity in Portland’s waste collection system.
