Invitation to discuss Metro South Transfer Center Project 3/30/21

Tuesday, March 30th, 7pm on Zoom (https://zoom.us/j/93567433186?pwd=U005Sk5lK0taNWZzY1NqTlFVMHdpQT09) – see complete Zoom link options below

Managing the region’s garbage and recycling waste well is vital to our community and helps us protect the environment.  Please come to a discussion to learn about Metro’s current efforts to expand and improve services that are now provided at the Metro South Transfer Station in Oregon City.  This transfer station is a critical part of our community’s garbage and recycling infrastructure, serving about 250,000 customers per year, including self-haul customers and garbage and recycling collection companies.  Due to the age, limitations, and safety concerns of the existing location, Metro has been working to identify possible locations to build a new modern facility to move some or all of the services to a new location. The future facility could be built following examples of other modern transfer stations and could provide community facing services like art, education, expanded reuse and repair opportunities, or meeting spaces. 

We invite you to come learn more about the project and a site that Metro is considering for purchase in the summer of 2021. During this conversation Metro staff will share information about how and why they are planning for the project and how Metro is engaging the community to understand opportunities and challenges of this site and the project.  This will be a 20 minute presentation, followed by 30-40 minutes of Q&A with CPO members and participants.

Please see the overview of the project and the site under consideration, as well as explore the project website for more information.

Thanks and hope to see you there.
