We are a group of volunteers in Lane County, working to improve this planet – one decision at a time.
EcoGeneration’s primary mission is to safeguard and improve the ecosystems that humans coexist with. We focus on protecting biodiversity in and around the Pacific Northwest. Our intentions are to decrease organic and inorganic waste, increase awareness of the impact of waste, increase an individual’s understanding of their carbon footprint; based on their consumer habits, with the intention of assisting them to decrease the impact that they have on planet earth. EcoGeneration also desires to establish, maintain, and enhance ecological systems in the face of climate change.
WHAT WE DO
Our Recycling Take-Back Program is unique to the Lane County Area. In addition to working with Lane County as Community Collectors (Clean, Label-Free plastics resin coded 2, 4, or 5), we also collect and recycle within several other streams of waste.
We take pride in knowing that we are actively working to reduce the amount of waste going to landfills while preserving our resources for future generations. Currently, we have a huge emphasis on recycling plastics within any stream that we can find. When we accept recycling from the community we are taking responsibility for ensuring that it gets recycled, while also working to assure the highest quality product for our recyclers. At this time, our plastics go to Denton Plastic (through Lane County), TerraCycle, Preserve Gimme 5, and several others that wish to remain anonymous at this time.
