Welcome to AOR

The Association of Oregon Recyclers (AOR) was formed in 1977 to support the fledgling recycling industry and promote recycling in the state of Oregon. AOR provides a forum for discussing recycling issues at a level that reflects the deep pool of membership expertise. Our nonprofit 501(c)6 allows us to influence government policy. We encourage education and growth through newsletters, forums, tours, annual conferences and award presentations.

AOR members encompass a diverse group of city, county and state government staff; non-profit organizations; representatives from recycling and solid waste companies; compost processors; reuse organizations; colleges and universities; and private citizens. With over 500 members, AOR continues to set the industry standard for encouraging sustainable legislative initiatives and awareness.

AOR welcomes all regardless of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, committee members, event participants, volunteers, contractors, exhibitors and all Oregonians. AOR values the well-being of all Oregonians and supports the conditions upon where we work and live that result in health and happiness.
