The DEQ Says: Check Out Our New Outreach Resources!

Solid Waste and Recycling Advisors Logo

Two new informational documents have been developed to help summarize important concepts in the proposed Part 115 draft legislation.  The Benchmark Recycling Standards 2-Pager covers basic details surrounding the portion of the proposed Materials Management Planning process that would have planning committees thinking about ways to increase recycling access and convenience in their communities.  The Calculating a Recycling Rate 2-Pager discusses ways a community could generate a recycling rate based on their materials management practices, and use that data to improve.

To view these new resources, you can visit  and click on the corresponding hyperlinks under the “SW Laws Revision” tab.  For a direct link, click here for Benchmark Recycling Standards and here for Calculating a Recycling Rate.

Thank you for your continued interest and support of the proposed Part 115 amendments!
