Metro staff will hold a public hearing on the draft administrative rules for the regional service standard. This standard sets the base level of service for all government recycling collection programs in greater Portland. A new chapter of Metro Code was recently adopted, Chapter 5.15, by Metro Council in December 2020.
The proposed administrative rules support the implementation of Metro Code Chapter 5.15 and in addition to other service standard details, aim to reduce barriers to recycling for those living in multifamily housing. These improvements include per unit service levels and standardized bin colors and signage.
