AOR Fall Forum - The Intersection of People Experiencing Homelessness and Solid Waste

November 13th, 2018 | 10:00am - 4:30pm
Sheraton Airport Hotel | 8235 NE Airport Way, Portland, OR 97220

There are approximately 14,000 people experiencing homelessness throughout the state of Oregon with roughly 4,000 of those individuals in Portland. During our Sustainable Oregon 2018 conference, a panel presented on the intersection of homelessness and illegal dumping while only providing a glimpse into equitable solutions. 

For the AOR Fall Forum, we are continuing the conversation with a day of exploration where solid waste professionals, and community stakeholders can learn about, network with, and apply feedback on initiatives that address the reduction of waste, illegal dumping, and homelessness. 

Our morning panel will provide an overview of how being under-housed and having inadequate access to trash collection impacts the solid waste system including costs, cleanup, tonnage, hazardous waste (needles), and more. 

We'll enjoy a networking lunch, followed by an interactive afternoon roundtable discussion with presenters working  with the homeless populations, and those in the solid waste and recycling industry who are working on innovative and collaborative solutions where these two difficult challenges intersect.
