The Oregon Recycling System Advisory Council or Recycling Council will advise DEQ and the Producer Responsibility Organizations on key recycling system elements, including the uniform statewide collection list, PRO program plans, and more. The council consists of 17 members appointed by the Governor, plus 2 non-voting members of the Legislature appointed by the Senate President and Speaker of the House. Members of the Council represent local governments, community-based organizations representing the interests of historically underserved groups, small business, environmental nonprofit organizations, the recycling industry, service providers, processors or material end users and producers of covered products or producer trade associations or suppliers.
The Recycling Council is an advisory body. The council will review key elements in the recycling system and provide recommendations to DEQ and the PROs. The council's duties begin during the initial development and implementation phase prior to July 2025 and continue throughout ongoing implementation in perpetuity.
