Become a Master Recycler

Master Recycler.

Take an 8-week course on sustainable consumption and recycling. The course includes over 25 local-expert speakers and tours of nearby recycling and reuse facilities. After you graduate, volunteer 30 hours in the community to share what you’ve learned and become certified!

Clackamas County hosts the course once each year in the spring, and we provide volunteer opportunities, assistance and resources to Master Recycler volunteers after the course is over. Volunteers have gone on to help at community events, with schools, at their workplace and in their neighborhoods.
