Brochures Cover the Ins and Outs of Waste Reduction
Byline: RECYCLING By Pete Chism For The Register-Guard
In 2004, the Resource Recovery Advisory Committee, a citizen advisory group for the Lane County Waste Management Division, set a goal to enhance recycling awareness in Lane County.
Lane County staff responded by creating a new series of brochures and a Recycler's Handbook on a variety of waste management issues, from waste reduction to recycling to the landfill. The goal of this project is to share more information about all aspects of the services provided by the employees of the Lane County Waste Management Division and the contractors of Lane County services; including BRING Recycling, St. Vincent de Paul, Eugene Mission, Weyerhaeuser Co., Schnitzer Steel, Rexius By Products, Earth Protection Services, and Computer Reuse and Recycling Center.
The handouts detailing the ins and outs of waste management in Lane County are available at all Lane County recycling and refuse sites. In addition, the following locations also will carry the new brochures and Recycler's Handbook: Lane County Public Service Building, 125 East Eighth Ave.; City of Eugene, Atrium Building, 99 West 10th; BRING Recycling Warehouse, 86641 Franklin Blvd.; Springfield City Hall, 225 Fifth St., Springfield; Florence City Hall, 250 Highway 101, Florence; Cottage Grove City Hall, 400 Main St., Cottage Grove; Cottage Grove Library and Community Center, 700 E. Gibbs St., Cottage Grove; Junction City City Hall, 680 Greenwood St., Junction City; Fern Ridge Library, Veneta.
Here's a list of the new Lane County Waste Management Division brochures:
Glenwood Central Receiving Station: There are 30 different materials that are collected in Glenwood. We like to call it our "one stop dropping center" for all your recycling needs.
Rural Recycling: Covering 15 sites from Florence to Oakridge, this brochure provides information about site locations, hours of operation and contact information, as well as the many recycling opportunities provided in rural areas of Lane County. …
