Waste & Recycling

Going Green at work is just as important as it is at home, especially when it comes to our waste. No matter where you work, there are likely many opportunities to reduce, reuse, recycle — and rethink.

Rethink Waste Project

We have gathered all the local tools and resources you need to rethink your waste at work on the Rethink Waste Project website, Deschutes County’s one stop shop for about all things related to waste, recycling and composting.

Find out how to get started with 10 easy workplace waste busters, download garbage & recycling station signs for your office, kitchen, or break room, and consider commercial composting for your business.

Be sure to check out the “Find A Reuser/Recycler tab for outside the bin thinking for over 50 common hard to recycle items.

Rethink Waste is also your source for answers to common recycling questions, guidance for what to do with your electronic waste, and how to throw a zero waste event.

Want to get your staff, civic organization or neighborhood on board to reduce waste?  Contact us (see below) to schedule a free Rethink Waste community presentation.
