Curbside recycling service is included in the cost of garbage collection. International market changes are driving changes in the way that recycling is processed in our area. Most materials are commingled, with glass collected in a separate container. Below is an updated list of what can be recycled curbside as of April 9, 2018. All items must be clean.
Know Before You Throw
Contamination reduces the economy and effectiveness of our recycling system. Any items that are not clearly listed in the section below should not be placed in commingled recycling bins. Items that are not clearly recyclable should be put in the trash—when in doubt, find out or throw it out.
If you are unsure whether or not an item is recyclable, you can find out by using Lane County’s tool, Waste Wise, which allows you to enter an item into the database and it will tell you how to recycle it or dispose of it. Visit Waste Wise for more information and download their App! You can also download our Recycling Flyer that shows what items are accepted and what items are not. Traducción al español aquí.
