The City of Corvallis, Republic Services and other local partners teamed up for what is locally referred to as Couch Patrol. The idea came out of a Rental Property Managers Group meeting at the Corvallis Elks Lodge last May, and has turned into a successful initiative. Local property managers and landlords, the City of Corvallis and Oregon State University are also involved in this effort to reduce the clutter on the streets and other livability issues that stem from the spring move-out (in the spring) or move-in (in the fall) of OSU students.

The Couch Patrol plans to continue to collaborate on ways to keep Corvallis clean and safe for the students and local residents. The local division of Republic Services donated an industrial strength dumpster and recycling bins, Benton Habitat for Humanity contributed tents and tables, and a cadre of volunteers helped unload and sort recyclables and other items. These companies and volunteers are working together to make a positive impact on the local community.
