Community recycling offers options beyond the curb

Recycling depots accept many non-curbside items, including three Far West Recycling locations in Portland. There are also community events that offer ways for residents to drop off materials for recycling and proper disposal. These events are free but appreciate donations.

Community Recycling hosts events each year that collect and recycle many items not eligible for curbside disposal. The next event is Saturday, March 18, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Southwest Portland.

Review the website for details on what to bring and how to prepare the accepted items.

Accepted items include:

  • CFL lightbulbs
  • Bulky, rigid plastics
  • Corks
  • Batteries
  • Ink and toner cartridges
  • Holiday lights
