Mt. Hood Meadows has become a nationwide leader in their industry in the area of recycling. They go above and beyond the standard recycling efforts to include nearly all materials that are recyclable in Oregon. Some of the materials they collect (beyond curbside recyclables) include: film plastics, rigid plastics, rubber, metals, electronics, Styrofoam, packing materials, and more!
ReClaim It! was started by Crackedpots. They recognized the need for a place where materials could be rescued from disposal. They created a place where the creative citizens of Portland can find unique materials. ReClaim It! is a nonprofit art and reuse retail store that salvages material from the Metro transfer station (operated by Recology) for artists, homeowners, and DIYers to Reuse, Repair, and Reimagine.
