Josephine County Recycling

Anna Reed/Statesman Journal

Since China announced it would no longer accept America's recyclables, the region's waste management services have been scrambling to find a new route for the recyclables they collect. Unfortunately, one route for the stuff we used to recycle runs straight to the landfill.

Southern Oregon Sanitation, which serves Josephone County and parts of Jackson County, is taking a step forward by constructing a new recycling depot and processing facility, which it plans to open in 2020.

SOS's Colleen Kaylor visits to talk about what JoCo residents can expect from the new facility.
