Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Waste Prevention Outreach

The organization maintains a website and produces a newsletter for members and the general public. Both of these serve to educate and provide information regarding waste prevention and recycling. They are also formats to showcase various recycling events and issues that members or the general public may want to participate in.

In 2016, Recycling Advocates kicked off a campaign focused on reducing the number of disposable, single use coffee cups going into area landfills. Our campaign slogan is “BYOC!” which stands for Bring Your Own Cup. This campaign will be a multi-year initiative for us, until we create a change in behavior within the Portland metro region, where disposable coffee cups are no longer the standard method for drinking coffee.
