Outreach

In 1989, CES began pioneering innovative recycling and outreach strategies that developed into the Portland multifamily recycling program. This established Portland as the first city in the United States to offer a multifamily recycling program. Today, CES continues to improve and expand its outreach capabilities, partnering with many organizations in the Portland metro area to serve residents and businesses.

CES outreach programs give students an opportunity to engage the Portland community, improving sustainability practices in the region. When students transition into their careers, they are equipped with the knowledge and skills to be change agents in their industries and communities. See alumni page.
