About

Garbage and recycling curbside service to businesses and residences throughout Clark County.

Green Business Features

Waste Connections Eastridge is an office of Waste Connections, Inc. which provides curbside garbage and recycling collection in Clark County. The primary function of this office is to provide customer service and administrative support. Waste Connections Eastridge has taken many steps to be green, including recycling and reusing as much as possible.

  • In addition to having mixed recycling, they collect chip, snack, and coffee bags for reuse by a local artist.
  • Items are kept from the waste stream by donating items through Craigslist and SCRAP, a Portland-based non-profit organization which supports creative reuse of materials.
  • The company offered its employees a sustainable gift-wrapping station this past holiday season, using material such as old maps as wrapping paper.
  • Instead of having disposables in the lunch room, Waste Connections Eastridge has washable dishware.
  • Office supplies don't go to waste when they're not needed for one employee or project. The office has a space for used file folders, binders, etc.

The green team engages employees in green initiatives with a 'green bucks' program. Employees seen biking to work, turning off a computer monitor, or any other green action, are rewarded with green bucks that can be exchanged for prizes.

Waste Connections Eastridge also finds lots of ways to give back to the community. They sponsor events like Relay for Life and, in addition, managers give their time and alternate volunteering for Meals on Wheels.
