Community Plastics Collection


Lane County Waste Management offers plastic collection for #2, #4, #5 plastics to "registered" community collectors. Only #2, #4, and #5 tubs, bottles and jugs are accepted. Items must be stamped and presorted by both shape and number. Items must be clean and dry. All decals and adhesive labels must be removed. 

To find a volunteer community collector near you, please email [email protected] with your name and complete address, including zip code.

If you are interested in becoming a registered community collector, please email plasticscollection@lanecountyor.gov with your name, address and phone number. New community collectors attend a 20-minute orientation at Glenwood Transfer Station. Orientation is by appointment and is limited to two (2) persons at a time.

Thank you to our sponsors Camas Country Mill and Mountain Rose Herbs for providing bags to the program. We couldn't do it without your generous support.
