BRING Recycling is one of the nation's oldest non-profit recyclers. Since 1971, we have encouraged people to rethink what they use and what they throw away. We help our community keep useful items out of the landfill, find ways to use less stuff, reuse as many things as possible and recycle the rest. From collecting and processing household recyclables to teaching kids about using earthworms to compost, BRING has a wealth of information, practical tips and programs to help you live sustainably in Lane County.
BRING helps people understand how the stuff we use shapes the planet we share.
- Reuse – BRING collects and sells an extensive assortment of reusable building and industrial materials, serving homeowners, builders, remodelers, business owners, artists, teachers, students, and bargain hunters. Our reuse store saves hundreds of tons of resources and energy each year. Low-cost materials are a valuable resource for people of limited means.
- Community Education – BRING empowers children and adults to make a difference in their future. We teach the 4-Rs in Lane County classrooms; lead tours of community waste handling facilities; publish a free quarterly newsletter; and provide information and referral. We can tell you how to reuse or recycle just about anything!
- BRING Home & Garden Tour – Our annual tour provides community members an opportunity to experience “the art of sustainable living” firsthand and to exchange information with homeowners, gardeners, and a variety of experts.
- RE:think Business – More than 100 local businesses have already begun to trim waste and save money, thanks to BRING’s free consulting service. Businesses who complete our recommendations receive the classy RE:think Business award.
