Year Round Bulk Waste Disposal

There are many opportunities to safely dispose of your bulk waste outside of this event. The links above in the Community Clean Up Donation Guide direct you to our event partners, which we recommend you contact for donations or pickups throughout the year. Further options include the following:

Electronic Waste

  • Oregon residents may recycle up to 7 computers, monitors or TVs for free through Oregon e-cycles.
  • In Lake Oswego, participating Oregon E-Cycles dropoff locations are at Far West Fibers (341 Foothills Road, 503-200-5411) and Goodwill Donation Express (401 S. State Street, 503-238-6100).


  • There is currently not a secondary recycling market for plastics in Oregon. The best you can do is try to reduce the number of products you purchase in plastic, and bring your own produce bags and shopping bags to the store with you.

Hazardous Waste

  • Hazardous waste can be disposed of safely through Metro.
  • Metro has two facilities for hazardous waste: 2001 Washington Street, Oregon City and 6161 NW 61st Ave, Portland.

Refrigerators, Freezers and other Appliances with Freon

  • Energy Trust of Oregon will pick up eligible appliances for free and offer a cash incentive of $20 or $40, based on the age of the unit.
  • Non-working units can be picked up and disposed of by Republic Services for a fee.

Other Bulky Waste

  • Please contact Republic Services (503-636-3011) to arrange a pick up.
