Grant County has designated November 22 – 29 as “Recycling
Awareness Week.” It’s a good time for all of us to start making the most
of new opportunities to recycle. Recycling bins for plastic containers, tin
cans, newspaper, magazines, and cardboard are located at Clark’s Transfer
Station, 26431 Luce Creek Road, John Day, OR. Routine recycling makes a
real difference and contributes toward waste prevention. “Recycling”
redirects many discards away from disposal and back into commerce which
allows materials to be transformed for use as new products. “Waste
prevention” is about not making waste in the first place as we change
what we use and how we use it. Consumers can impact the environment

Some important questions for each of
us to ask are -- Is the item really needed or
can money be spent more productively? Can
the item be borrowed or rented rather than
bought new? Is the item made to last, or can it
be repaired if it breaks? Is it recyclable? Does it
have excessive packaging? If people practice
making sustainable purchases, we could save a
tremendous amount of resources and help
prevent products from being discarded. We all
can make it a daily practice to recycle, reuse,
and compost. Grant County promotes recycling
and waste reduction within the Grant
Wasteshed as required by OAR 340-090-0030
and 340-090-0040. For more information,
contact Grant County at 541-575-0059.
