Our region sends one million tons of garbage each year to landfills outside our boundaries to places such as Arlington, Oregon. The landfill there also receives all of Seattle’s garbage and still has more than 100 years of capacity left. Our choice to send our garbage to far away places impacts our health and environment. Are we okay with continuing our current system? Do we have ideas for improvements?
Let’s Talk Trash is a series of events designed to present information, raise awareness, and generate ideas about how our region can best manage its garbage in the future. On November 4th at 6:30pm, The Oregon Historical Society and Metro invite you to a dynamic, engaging discussion about the past, present, and future of landfills in Oregon.
