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 Concurrence. 

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.
