West Linn Refuse & Recycling Residential Recycling Services

West Linn Refuse & Recycling offers recycling collection for residents in the West Linn, Oregon area. We employ over 200 employees and operate a fleet of 50 trucks to serve the diversified needs of our customers in West Linn and other communities in northwest Oregon. An 8 gallon recycling bin will be provided to each service recipient.

 

Prepare Your Materials

Please prepare your recyclables as instructed below. Recycling properly saves energy, reduces pollution, and preserves resources for future uses. Even a small amount of contaminants can cause manufacturers to reject an entire load of recycling, which may then end up as garbage in the landfill. This adds to the cost of collecting and processing, which can cause an increase in your garbage collection fees. Here is a link​ to a printable version.
