Yard Debris, Metal, Glass and Food were all the subject of the tour this Spring. Master Recyclers toured four facilities on a marathon of learning about how we recovery various materials in the region. Six of them took notes and pictures and shared them for the newsletter.
Three key messages for metal recycling: 1) A clear list of accepted metals for curbside recycling exists. 2) There are some simple tricks to capture some of the smaller and flatter pieces. 3) Call Metro’s Recycle Information Center at (503)234-3000 for the local depots to recycle hard to process metal objects.
