The Town of Oregon Recycling Center (TORC) is a complete recycling and waste disposal center for all Town of Oregon residents.

The site is a full-service site for disposing of trash or recycling a variety of items.  To use the TORC, you need to purchase a TORC punch card from the Oregon Town Hall, 1138 Union Road or at the TORC.  The punch card costs $40.00 and never expires.  This works out to $2.00 per 30-gallon bag brought to the site.

There is no charge for bringing in recyclables that are placed in the bins, but we do have a minimal charges for special items.  These items cost the Town money to recycle and we are merely passing this cost on to the residents.  See the fees chart below.
