Our friends at Beanstalk Children’s Resale will be hosting a James Recycling pop-up event on Wednesday, October 4th, 2023, from 11am to 1:00pm at their FREMONT location.


Beanstalk is located at 3527 NE 15th Ave, Portland.  The pop-up will take place in front of the store.


We will ONLY be collecting the following non-curbside items:
   #1 PET with no color such as berry clamshells and salad containers 
   #2 HDPE such as Pak-Tek 6-pack holders and small white supplement bottles   
   #4 LDPE such as snap-on lids
   #5 PP such as take-out containers, lids, and cups
  #6 PS rigid plastics such as clear take-out containers and to-go plastic                                  coffee cup lids




Make sure these items are numbered #1, #2, #4, #5, or #6.  All items must be clean and sorted (no commingled plastic) or we cannot accept them.


Household plastics only, nothing larger than a basketball.


Our Pop-Up pricing is $4 per standard grocery bag


We hope to see you there!

    I attended the event at Revolution Hall on Saturday. It was the first I’ve heard of this service and I’m so excited to learn about it and your company history. Do you have an email list I could join to be notified of future events? Thank you for this remarkable service!!

    • James Recycling says:

      Hi Donna, thank you so much for your kind words! We have an email list that sends announcements for all events and pop-ups, so I’ll go ahead and add your name to that. Your support really means a lot, James has come a long way and I’m amazed at how much our community has embraced his work and our mission. -Kathi Goldman, James’ mom

  2. I went to the pop-up event at Beanstalk recently. You volunteers were advising people to use New Seasons for the #1 plastics.
    My understanding is that they ship the plastic out of state, probably to Texas or California. Do you also ship #1s out of state, or are they processed locally?

    Thank you,

    • James Recycling says:

      Hi Paula,

      I believe New Seasons takes their #1 PET to a local company called D6 but you’ll need to double-check with them. I don’t know which volunteer told you they ship to Texas or California, but it might not be accurate. Ours are processed locally through Far West Recycling.

    Will you be at ARC thrift dropoff location on N.E Halsey in April or May, 2024?

    • James Recycling says:

      Hi MaryAnn,

      We don’t have anything set up at the ARC for April or May yet, but I think that will change. We’ll post it on our website if that happens.
