Let's Talk Trash!

Welcome to the Tillamook County Solid Waste Department.

 

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.

America Recycles Day Activities

Several Tillamook County Schools participated in our various ARD activities this year. Like we did last year, we offered a plastic jug collection for grades 2-6. We had 4 schools take part collecting plastics destined for the landfill. Besides the plastic collection, we offered a tin collection for those in grades 7-12. Two schools participated, each earning a prize! Last but not least, we offered an art contest for grades K-3 and a 2014 calendar was made using selected entries. Again, two schools participated. This calendar was distributed county-wide so everyone could enjoy the children's creativity. You can view all entries by clicking here.

America Recycles Day is an annual event taking place every November 15. Watch for our activities in 2014!

 

Reports From the Fair!

The chairs shown in these pictures are made of 100% recycled materials that were donated by Tillamook County businesses. The pictures show the final products of a project which involved several community groups, each of whom were necessary in its implementation.

 We would like to express thanks to:

  • Green Team of East Elementary (who collected the ‘Styrofoam peanuts’ for the filler)
  • Mar Claire Motel (who provided the used sheets for the inner liner)
  • TLC Federal Credit Union, All Starr Signs (who provided the vinyl outer covers)
  • Five River Coffee Roasters (who provided the coffee bag outer covers)
  • And especially Lynne Averill who sewed this concept into reality.
  • We would like to continue this program and involve other groups and businesses.  If you are interested in participating, please contact the Tillamook County Solid Waste Department, 503.815.3975.

    People of all ages made food boats from upcycled brownboard (cereal boxes, frozen pizza boxes, cake mix boxes, etc.) at the Tillamook County Solid Waste booth at the County Fair. They received a $1 coupon to use at local food vendors, who served them in their own creations. Thanks to Up In Smoke, The Local Dog House, and Sacred Heart Church.
