Sustainability

Keeping our city clean for our future

We are always looking for opportunities to protect our planet for future generations. From composting programs to mixed recycling containers, we focus on green and sustainable practices.  Our garbage trucks run on B20 biodiesel and are even fitted with modified exhausts that reduce carbon emissions.  We pride ourselves in our relationships with forward thinking Portland companies such as New Seasons Markets and Fred Meyer Stores which both participate in many of our sustainable programs.  As one of the first haulers to take part in the Portland curbside recycling and composting programs we are able to help you in your household sustainability efforts here in Portland. 

Arrow Sanitary is proud to be a vital part of Portland’s city sanitary services.   We are happy to sponsor and provide sustainability efforts for many local events around Portland including the Bridge Pedal and Bite of Portland!  One of our goals in these partnerships is to help educate participants on recycling and composting.  We provide events with diversion and sustainability reports and work hard to increase recycling and composting each year. 

We are proud to have certified Master Recyclers on staff who can assist with any of your questions on Portland disposal and recycling.   We are here to help.  Many of your questions can be answered through Metro, our local governing body on sustainability. Click here to visit Metro's web site.
