Required recycling

Local ordinances require businesses—including private business, schools, public agencies and non-profit organizations—to provide employees the opportunity to recycle paper, cardboard and containers, such as plastic, metal and glass bottles and jars. Workplaces in both cities and unincorporated areas of Clackamas County are required to recycle.

These business recycling requirements help the state reach a mandated waste reduction goal and recycle an additional 80,000 tons of paper and containers.
