It’s Easy Being Green

Recycle: The simplest way to live greener is to recycle. While it’s not mandatory in Lincoln County, it’s made easy through residential co-mingled pick-up service. Visit the TSS website to learn more.

Compost: Beyond just recycling, the next level in eco-conscious living is turning your food waste into nutrient-rich soil. Avoid adding more trash than necessary to local landfills by purchasing a backyard composting system from one of several locations in Lincoln County.

Wood and yard waste disposal: In addition to food waste composting, proper yard waste disposal is an integral piece of the eco-friendly puzzle. Learn more about disposal locations here: Thompson’s Sanitary Service.

Shop local: From May through October make sure the Newport Saturday Farmers Market is one of your shopping destinations for fresh, local produce and other natural products.

Another easy way to make sure you’re eating and supporting local is to visit Local Ocean Seafoods in Newport for a wide array of locally caught seafood, or Oceana Natural Foods Cooperative for everything else.

General Newport Resources: Check out the Newport Chamber of Commerce, it’s a great starting place for all Newport-centric questions.
