Sustainability in Lake Oswego

Welcome to the Lake Oswego Sustainability Program

The City of Lake Oswego Sustainability program is dedicated to helping the City and its citizens create a healthy, active and clean community today and into the future. Along with the citizen-based Sustainability Advisory Board, the Sustainability program assists with the following goals and activities:

  • Planning community events like Community Shred Day and Community Clean Up Day
  • Administering the annual commute challenge
  • Assisting residents with questions about waste, toxics, recycling, and other environmental needs
  • Ensuring that sustainability is considered in City plans and policies
  • Community outreach
  • Working across City departments to create a healthy, productive and environmentally-conscious workplace
  • Advocating for a sustainable Lake Oswego

I'd like to learn more and participate!
