Trash & Recycling



In August 2017, we rolled out new recycling carts to every home and apartment that receives trash and recycling collection from the City of Portland. These carts replace the small blue bins we had been using since 1999. The carts hold almost four times more material than the blue bin. They also have lids, which protect the contents from wind and animals, and greatly reduce litter on our streets. The ergonomic design also allows nearly anyone to roll their recycling cart to the curb with ease.
