DEQ’s Materials Management Program generates dozens of reports a year, ranging from highly technical, scientific papers to more accessible studies, such as reports about recycling rates in Oregon. State agencies, local governments, partner organizations, businesses and Oregonians rely on DEQ’s reports to make decisions and stay informed. This page captures some of the program’s more substantial reports, starting with the state’s 2050 Vision and Framework for Action (Material Management’s credo), followed by strategic plans and technical reports.
