Lane County to host Plastics Roundup; early access for ‘community collectors’

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.”
In an effort to limit carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, 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 . . .
