Don't Waste Your Apples. Recycle Them!!

Bring us your Backyard Apples to turn in to a Community Cider for Charity!

Portland Cider Company is coordinating our 3rd annual Community Cider, made with 100% recycled Backyard Apples from the amazing people in the Portland Metro area. We once again call upon the Portland community for backyard apples to hand-press into a community cider to support a local charity. We're collecting bushels of unwanted fruit August 1 thru October 1, with drop-off at our Clackamas Taproom + Cidery.

This full-scale community effort is about bringing people together to create handmade craft cider, using the apples from our own backyards here in the Portland Metro area, while reducing waste with this unique Apple Recycling program. Bringing together cider, community, sustainability, tradition and charity in Portland Cider Company’s Community Cider release, “Oregon Wild.”

100% of the net proceeds of the cider sales will be donated to the Oregon Wild conservation organization. 

We invite you to recycle your apples, not throw them away! Bring us your fallen and unwanted fruit in exchange for Portland Cider trade. And when the time comes, you also get to help with the pressing of the apples you brought in! Details below.



  • At least 1 pint of cider - for every bushel, we will give you a pint (4 bushels = 1 growler fill)

  • Hands-on experience pressing apples into cider if you join our Harvest Party on September 29

  • Good Karma from Mother Earth with 100% of net proceeds donated to Oregon Wild

*40lbs or more of non-rotting apples
Payment in trade vouchers redeemable at either of our taprooms. While supplies last.

100% net proceeds donated to oregon wild

Why are we naming the cider “Oregon Wild?” Because 100% of the net proceeds of the cider created & sold as part of the PDX Apple Recycling collection will be donated to the organization Oregon Wild. This conservation non-profit works to protect and restore Oregon’s wildlands, wildlife and waters as an enduring legacy for all Oregonians. Portland Cider Company recently joined as the first cidery in the coalition of brewers that makes up the Oregon Brewshed Alliance, an outreach initiative for Oregon Wild.
