AOR is pleased to announce that Sustainable Oregon 2021 will be held on October 20-22, 2021. We are seeking passionate and effective storytellers who would like to share their innovations, solutions, and stories of change. The annual AOR conference is an opportunity for new and old colleagues in the recycling, waste prevention and sustainable materials management industries to connect about ideas, learn what’s on the horizon, and be inspired.
March 19th was the deadline for bills to be submitted during Oregon’s 2021 Legislative Session. Bills that are still “alive” will need to pass out of their committee of origin by the next deadline, which is April 13th.
