Material Recovery and Waste Generation Survey

A "wasteshed" is defined in Oregon law as being an area of the state that shares a common solid waste disposal system, or an appropriate area in which to develop a common recycling system. For the most part, individual Oregon counties are designated as wastesheds. The two exceptions are that:

  • The greater Portland tri-county area, consisting of Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington Counties, is designated as the Metro wasteshed.
  • Milton-Freewater, a city within Umatilla County, is designated as a separate wasteshed.

Recycling goals are set in Oregon law for each separate wasteshed, and each county is generally responsible for compiling information on city and county recycling programs within the wasteshed and submitting that information to the Department of Environmental Quality.
