Portland Event Recycling Project
Portland Event Recycling Project

In a partnership between The City of Portland and Community Environmental Services, the Portland Event Recycling Program (PER) works to decrease the amount of landfill bound waste generated by Portland’s numerous festivals, street fairs, and other community events.  PER program staff works one-on-one with event organizers to develop and implement site-specific waste diversion systems for events and manages and distributes event recycling and composting equipment. Through Portland Event Recycling, the City of Portland provides assistance and equipment to events free of charge.
