Recycling Advocates as an organization has been here since the beginning, in effort to change and improve our community through recycling efforts. Many past and present board members have decades of experience in Oregon’s recycling campaigns. We’ve always gone beyond the notion of recycling, which the name of our organization implies. We know the hierarchy of importance is Reduce, Reuse and Recycle (R-R-R), in that order. We will continue to keep you updated about important issues, provide volunteer opportunities and be a guide for you in your own R-R-R efforts within your home, workplace or event.
We’re Here For You
Our goal is to provide well-researched analysis, to help insure that citizen’s views are expressed and that policy decisions are based on all the facts. Keep coming back to our Web site and our Facebook page for current updates and to find out ways to take action. You can also sign up for our newsletter and browse through our newsletter archive.

Our goal is to provide well-researched analysis, to help insure that citizens’ views are expressed and that policy decisions are based on all the facts.
