The Portland Pollution Prevention Outreach Team provides coordinated educational messages and technical assistance in pollution prevention to citizens and businesses. We are a cooperative working group of local area jurisdictional staff from: Cities of Portland and Gresham, Clackamas County, Metro, Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, Clean Water Services, and Washington County. Our team includes planners and management experts in air pollution, hazardous materials, solid waste, surface water, and wastewater disciplines. We have joined together to promote, enhance and implement comprehensive pollution prevention programs and materials.
WHAT WE DO
THE P20 MISSION:
"To provide coordinated educational messages and technical assistance in pollution prevention to citizens and businesses."
We hope to foster pollution prevention as the preferred environmental protection strategy within local and state agencies, and to support and promote similar efforts within the private sector and at the community level. Our goals are to focus on comprehensive multi-media environmental results and preventive solutions; share resources and enhance consistency and efficiency in the delivery of prevention information and services; and to improve communication and interrelationships between agencies.
We work with local business, industry and professional groups and individuals to create educational materials that are relevant for that work related group. By including the subject audience in our materials creation process, we are able to effectively communicate our multi-media approach to pollution prevention and reduction.
