Master Recycler course comes to Clackamas County this spring; registration deadline is March 1

Are you a champion for recycling at your home or workplace? Would you like to help our community throw away less? Are you itching to learn what happens to your recycling after the truck drives away? Enroll in the upcoming Master Recycler course in Clackamas County!

Registration is open until noon on Tuesday, March 1, for the regional course held next spring. The course provides an in-depth, hands-on opportunity to learn about recycling and thoughtful consumption – and then use that knowledge to make an immediate difference in the community.

The eight-week course, offered only once a year in Clackamas County, meets Wednesdays in the evening and on two Saturdays for half-day field trips. The spring 2016 session runs from March 30 to May 18 at the county Development Services Building, 150 Beavercreek Road in Oregon City. Saturday field trips will be April 9 and May 7.

There is a $50 fee to cover course materials. Limited scholarships are available. For more details or to apply, go to or call 503-545-8976.

Participants agree to attend all classes and field trips and put their skills to work to help others conserve natural resources by volunteering 30 hours of time to public outreach.

The regional Master Recycler Program is sponsored by a partnership of local governments including Clackamas County, Washington County, the city of Portland, Metro, the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, and Recycling Advocates.
