The Rethink Waste Project is a project of The Environmental Center.
We provide waste prevention and reduction education for Deschutes County residents through a partnership with Deschutes County Department of Solid Waste and our local garbage and recycling service providers.
We work together to provide consistent information to the community regarding ideas for preventing waste in the first place, and options for responsible material management. Services we provide to the community include:
- Free presentations for community groups, businesses, and organizations.
- Community outreach at various events.
- Providing event organizers with assistance and materials to organize zero waste events.
- Organizing seasonal repair cafes where volunteers fix broken items.
- Assist community members with various projects and initiatives related to waste reduction or management.
