Business Resource Recovery
Corvallis can take a significant step in reducing greenhouse gases through resource recovery. Organics is the single largest portion of Benton County’s waste stream and a major contributor to the creation of methane when disposed of in a landfill. More than half of the food disposed of from the Corvallis area comes from businesses. The Business Resource Recovery Ordinance (BRRO) proposed by YouCAN Corvallis will help businesses maximize prevention and composting of food waste, as well as recovery of recyclable items. Preventing wasted food, composting wasted food, and recovering recyclable materials at Corvallis businesses will help our community reduce its carbon footprint.
