We’re re-thinking waste.
CARTM Recycling promotes sustainable living and artistic expression through the creative re-use of materials.
CARTM Recycling promotes sustainable living and artistic expression through the creative re-use of materials. We collect our community’s ‘discards’ and sort it into reusable items, recyclable materials and finally, trash. We make the good stuff available to become new again — as art, as building materials or furniture and as raw materials for new packaging.
There is no other place quite like CARTM — we operate a unique recycling center, The Refindery re-use store, and the solid waste transfer station all in one location between Manzanita and Nehalem on Oregon’s north coast.
Why take on so much? We do it to provide a viable choice for our customers each time they have an item to discard:
- Can it be reused or turned into something else? Check. We have a place for it.
- Can it be recycled? Check. We accept over 40 different materials for recycling.
- It’s so icky, it can only go in the garbage! Check. You’ll find our trash rates and the items we cannot accept even in the trash at the bottom of the Materials We Take page.
Come on in! Bring in your stuff to CARTM Recycling and while you are letting go of items you no longer need, shop for new treasures at The Refindery and meet the amazing staff and volunteers working to create a sustainable zero waste future.
