Every day, residents and businesses of greater Portland throw stuff away. Metro manages the system that handles and transports all that stuff – some 2.4 million tons every year of garbage, food scraps, yard trimmings, recycling, and hazardous waste – to their final destinations. Over the last 18 months, Metro has worked with communities around the region to shape the future of the garbage and recycling system.
This open-house style forum will convene interested individuals to review the draft 2030 Regional Waste Plan, the upcoming plan adoption process, ask questions and an opportunity to comment on the draft plan.
The forum experience: what to expect
Attendees will hear a brief overview of the plan development process as well as next steps for plan adoption. After the presentation, participants can engage in a self-paced, open-house style, review of the draft plan. Metro staff will be on hand to answer questions. Comment stations will be set up for participants to provide public comment, if desired.
The overview presentation will repeat at 4:30 p.m.
