Free Plastics Roundup

  • Glenwood Transfer Station 3100 E. 17th Ave. Eugene, OR 97403 (map)

Lane County Waste Management is hosting a plastics roundup for clean #2, #4 and #5 (polyethylene and polypropylene) at the Glenwood Transfer Station in April and offering early access to businesses, churches, individuals and neighborhood groups who sign up as “community collectors.”

Lane County is seeking community collectors to gather plastics from employees, neighbors and friends. Registered community collectors can begin collecting materials in January and February, then will be able to make an appointment to drop off plastics in March and April.

Lane County will provide registered community collectors with signage, collection sacks, promotion (if desired), training and instructions on correct material preparation. To register as a community collector, click here or call 541-682-6536.

Our partner, plastics processor Denton Plastics, accepts #2, #4 and #5 tubs, jugs, bottles, lids and 6-pack handles that are CLEAN and free of debris (labels removed). Materials must be sorted in the following material categories: #2 bottles & jugs; #2 tubs & lids; #2 6-pack handles; #4 bottles, tubs & lids; #5 bottles, tubs & lids. Depending on what materials you collect, this could represent up to (5) five separate categories.

Residents who are not able to find a community collector are encouraged to come to the Plastics Roundup on Sunday, April 7, 2019 at the Glenwood Transfer Station from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Unsorted, dirty or incorrect plastic materials will not be accepted.
