Recycling in Oregon: PDX Potluck

  • Friends Meeting Hall 4312 Southeast Stark Street Portland, OR, 97215 United States (map)

We love to recycle, but what happens to all that stuff we put in our recycling bin, and why has China recently been closing their ports to most of our recyclables? Peter Spendelow has been Northwest VEG’s President or co-President for 10 years, but has worked as a recycling and materials management specialist for the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality for 32 years. Come find out what we are doing right and what we are doing wrong with recycling, and how a comprehensive materials management strategy can help reduce the exploitation of Oregon’s and the world’s environment.
