November General Meeting

The State of Recycling in Clackamas County
(and related topics)
Wednesday November 14, 2018
1:30 - 3:00 pm
Riverside Room at Oswego Pointe Clubhouse
5065 Foothills Drive, Lake Oswego

Eben Polk, Sustainability Supervisor, Clackamas County Sustainability Office, will spend the afternoon with the LWV of Clackamas County members, friends and public discussing the topic of “materials management” that civilians refer to as “recycling”. Mr. Polk has been with the county for 10 years.
Sustainable Clackamas County is the home of programs, initiatives and policies to promote waste prevention and efficient use of resources and energy in households, businesses and schools. The focus is based in environmental impact, energy efficiency, climate change and social equity.
The Oregon Administrative Rules define recycling as “any process by which solid waste materials are transformed into new products in such a manner that the original products may lose their identity.”
On January 1, 2018, recycling practices and markets were topsy-turvy following China’s ban on plastics and paper previously accepted from the US.  Have you noticed the impact on your garbage bill? Have you learned the common recycling blunders and changed your ways?
The LWVCC general meetings are open to the public. Invite and bring your friends and neighbors to meet us and learn with us.
