Thanks to the efforts of a broad coalition of Marion County residents and environmental groups, a 2019 bill in the Oregon State Legislature failed that would have given renewable energy credits to Covanta Marion, the state’s only municipal waste incinerator, in Brooks, OR.
Now, Covanta is once again trying to divert clean energy money to put their aging waste incinerator on life support. We need your help to tell the House Committee on Energy and Environment to hold firm and reject clean energy subsidies for burning trash.
Take action: Tell the Oregon House Committee on Energy and Environment to Reject House Bill 4049, the Covanta Marion waste incineration subsidy bill. Join is in-person on Thursday, February 6th at 1:00 PM in Hearing Room D to testify in front of the committee and tell them #DontGreenwashTrash.
Take action and find key talking points.
