Garbage and Recycling

Recycling depot changes: On Jan 1, 2018, China imposed a ban on mixed plastic and unsorted paper recycling. This has disrupted recycling markets worldwide. You may find certain materials are no longer accepted at your local recycling depot or grocery store, however, there are no changes to your curbside recycling service. Please continue to recycle properly at home, work, and school.

Visit Oregon’s Department of Environmental Quality’s website to learn how China’s proposed ban is affecting recycling.

We provide education and technical assistance to residents, businesses and workplaces, schools, and events throughout Clackamas County so our community can reduce waste, conserve resources, recycle effectively, and adopt more sustainable practices. We also oversee garbage and recycling services provided by collection companies in unincorporated areas of the county to ensure residents and businesses receive timely service at a reasonable cost.
