Waste Hierarchy in Benton County

Waste Prevention

Preventing waste is just as important as proper disposal of waste. We can stop waste before creating it. Materials have carbon footprints before they make it to their “end-of-life”, and to reduce that impact on our environment, here are some tips:

  • Before buying, think “do I need this item?”
  • Buy high quality products which will last a long time and can be repaired.
  • Shop locally, reducing shipping and packaging waste.
  • Prioritize shopping for pre-owned products whenever possible.
  • Repair and re-use items instead of discarding.
  • Donate usable items instead of discarding

Benton County’s Materials Management program aims to help our communities prevent waste before it occurs. Watch this video from DEQ to learn more.

Tan Recycling Cart

Recycling

Recyclables can be placed in your tan cart for collection. When an item’s useful life is completed, it is important to recycle. Recycling turns the materials from that item into something new, and reduces the need to generate new materials. Recycling helps conserve valuable resources and reduces the greenhouse gas footprint and climate change impacts of materials.

Contamination is a major issue, and prevents some items from being recycled properly. Be sure to place only acceptable items in the tan cart. Please leave out glass, bags and film, and anything with food waste.

Recycle Right! Use this guide to choose which items to recycle. All items must be empty, clean, and dry!
