Benton County is inviting qualified firms throughout Oregon, nationally, and internationally to submit proposals for the development of a Sustainable Materials Management Plan. This initiative aims to comprehensively address the environmental impact of materials throughout their entire lifecycle, necessitating collaboration across jurisdictional and geographical boundaries.
“Key elements of the plan include extensive community engagement, analyses, and recommendations to address material lifecycle impacts, and strategies for funding and administration,” said Benton County Community Development Solid Waste & Water Quality Program Coordinator Daniel Reddick. “The specific scope of work will be determined in collaboration with the selected proposer during the initial phase of plan development.”
