Our Purpose


Tillamook County regulates solid waste management, providing a coordinated and fiscally responsible solid waste program to protect the health, safety and welfare of the people, and the natural and scenic resources of Tillamook County.

 

Tillamook County seeks to minimize the impacts of materials throughout their lifecycle, implementing outreach and education strategies that encourage thoughtful consumption, the reduction of toxics, and the recovery of our material resources.

RECYCLED ITEMS EXCHANGE

Do you have an item that can be reused that you are looking to get rid of? For example, you are replacing the windows in your home but the old ones are still good. Rather than PAYING to dispose of them as garbage where they will eventually end up in a landfill why not see if anyone else can use them? Check our new RECYCLED ITEMS EXCHANGE page. If you have something that can be reused, contact us  and we'll post it on our website--free of charge! The only requirement is that the item must be free of charge as well. Contact us at recycle@co.tillamook.or.us to post your items.
