CES delivered customized outreach to increase recycling at businesses in Portland, Beaverton, Gresham, Washington County and Clackamas County, in coordination with Metro Regional Government. Each municipality received technical assistance in administering outreach materials and connecting businesses with free materials to aid in recycling, in an effort in increase diversion and ensure businesses in the region are in compliance with regional recycling requirements. 

CES also coordinated the Fork it Over program from 2004- 2017. The focus of the program was to reduce hunger and waste by connecting those with excess food to those in need of food. CES staff manage the Fork it Over webpage which provides an interactive map of locations to donate food and tips on how to successfully establish a food donation program.
