Mission Statement

We want to change the way you think about waste. Our mission is to create efficient sustainable systems for a pathway to zero waste through reducing, reusing, recycling and rethinking.


With the constant evolution in waste, recycling, and manufacturing industries, our philosophy is to approach these changes as opportunities for creating zero waste solutions with flexibility, integrity, innovation, and drive.


To create efficient systems and spaces where all residents of the Mid-Columbia region have access to recycling and sustainable material management that is consistent, easy and organized. To be a community driven leader inspiring other small towns and rural communities to come together continuously working toward a world with less waste!


Upstream, upstream, upstream. That’s what we’re always thinking; it helps to have the mighty Columbia River rolling through our backyard. By networking, sourcing and sorting strategically, we help our customers and communities create a more valuable material flow.
