Recycling and beneficial use
We promote waste diversion strategies and make sure recycling activities meet state requirements. We also oversee recycling facility registration and reporting, issue beneficial use determinations and track recyclable materials flow within the state.
- Facilities are classified by the types of materials handled and how they are operated.
Section 8 includes standards for reuse of some solid wastes by established beneficial use criteria.
