What is the Plastic Project?

Founded in 2021, our mission has been to reduce plastic waste in Yamhill County.

 

Why do we need The Plastic Project?

Plastic curbside recycling is very limited, so we collect hard-to-recycle containers to keep them out of incinerators and landfills.

 

What kind of projects do you have?

Public education, industry plastic waste consultation, special events, and expanding collection opportunities

 

RETHINK - REFUSE - REDUCE - REUSE - THEN RECYCLE
