Welcome to the Association of Oregon Recyclers

AOR is a nonprofit trade association that has advanced recycling and waste prevention in Oregon through its diverse membership since 1977. When businesses, governments, nonprofits, and individuals join together with a common goal, solutions emerge.

From supporting important recycling policies and programs at the local and state levels to providing a network where recyclers can share knowledge and expertise, AOR continues to be a solid foundation for recycling and recyclers in Oregon.


Sustainable Oregon 2016, AOR’s 38th annual Conference & Trade Show, will be held June 8-10 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Portland, Oregon.

The conference is a three-day interactive learning experience featuring cutting-edge educational sessions, workshops, local and national experts and speakers, facility tours, valuable networking opportunities, and an awards program to celebrate the achievements of Oregon’s recycling, reuse, and waste reduction businesses and leaders. The conference also provides unmatched networking opportunities in one location.

This is the time and place each year that recycling professionals from Oregon and around the Northwest gather to talk all things recycling, composting, and sustainable materials management.
