Recycling Market Crisis – Update
Grants Pass, OR – Southern Oregon
Sanitation (SOS) continues to keep all stakeholders in the current recycle
crisis informed with the most current information. As directed by the Counties
and Cities we operate recycle routes in, SOS has requested and received from
the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) a Conditional Material Handling
This concurrence allows SOS, when
needed, to dispose of recycle material in the landfill when there is no viable
recycle market for the material.
At this time, we plan to continue
to operate our recycle routes as normal but our recycle depots (1381 Redwood
Ave Grants Pass, 42 Ball Road Eagle Point, and 905 Kerby Mainline Road. Kerby) will
no longer be accepting any types of plastic or paper.
