City gets thumbs up for recycling compliance

The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) recently concluded its review of the 2017 Opportunity to Recycle Report, which determined that the City of Creswell is in compliance with DEQ recycling requirements.
The report states that because Creswell has a population of over 4,000, the City is required to implement general recycling requirements. All such requirements have been approved from the 2017 reporting year, noted DEQ Solid Waste Reduction Analyst Craig C. Filip.
Those requirements include having a place for collecting source-separated recyclable materials located at each permitted disposal . . .
