Each year an estimated 50 million mattresses find their way into the landfills of America and take at least 20 years to begin breaking down. Choosing to recycle your Portland mattress is a very wise choice.
By disposing of your mattresses with Rubbish Works of Portland, you are not only helping our environment, but also boosting our local economy. Depending on the size and condition, we can donate mattresses to our charity partners. It is our goal to recycle and re-purpose as many materials from your mattress as possible (up to 90%) to keep things out of the landfill and cut down on pollution.
Tire recycling or Rubber recycling is the process of recycling Portland vehicles tires that are no longer suitable for use on vehicles due to wear or irreparable damage (such as punctures). These tires are among the largest and most problematic sources of waste, due to the large volume produced and their durability. Those same characteristics which make waste tires such a problem also make them one of the most re-used waste materials, as the rubber is very resilient and can be reused in other products. Tires can be recycled for use on basketball courts, playground mats, turf field filler, new shoe products and more.
The unfortunate reality with tires is that there is no suitable disposal method that helps the environmentwithout them being collected and recycled.With an average of one tire discarded per person per year in Portland, you maybe stunned to see how many tires end up in the wrong kinds of places.
Rubbish Works of Portland can pick up your unwanted tires and see that they head down the path to a recycled future. We sometimes need to charge a nominal surcharge per tire in addition to our normal load rates to offset the added fees that are imposed by the transfer station or the recycling companies.
The price of metal in the Portland area has dropped dramatically from just a few years ago. This has made it difficult for individuals who salvage and collect scrap metal to sell to recyclers. Many have gone out of business as a result, leaving property owners with fewer options to get rid of old appliances, bed frames and other metal-containing items.
Rubbish Works offers removal service for all types and sizes of metal. We can save you time from taking a separate trip yourself to a recycler by combining your metal with other junk or debris that we pick up for you. This frees up your space and guarantees the metal will be recycled, cutting down on landfill waste. Rubbish Works can remove metal for recycling for business & residential clients anywhere within our service area.

The Bagster is a product offered in select areas of Portland for junk removal of up to 3 Cubic Yards (606-gallon capacity). Customers buy the bag at a local hardware or home improvement stores and then load it with material. The customer then must call and schedule a separate pickup for the bag.
The service includes the purchase of the bag which costs approximately $30 and then the pickup of around $150 in the Portland Metro area (which is paid upfront when scheduling pickup). That makes the total price for this product approximately $180. Some people think that purchasing the bag is the all-inclusive price and find out later that there is a second fee. Rubbish Works frequently pick up bags from customers because they were unhappy with the unexpected second charge.
