Abatement Recycling Assistance Program


    Abatement Recycling Assistance Program

Program Overview

The Wasco County ARA program helps with the removal and proper disposal of accumulations of materials from private properties. Through 2017 funding assistance may be available through grant from DEQ. Priority is given to property owners that are low income, aged, or infirmed (disabled). Property owners that do not meet minimum requirements  (please see below) will be addressed on a case by case basis and will incur the cost of cleanup; payment plans may be available.
