The Emergency Response Program develops and implements strategies to protect human health and the environment from toxins through preventing, preparing for, and minimizing the danger posed by the release of dangerous chemicals. The Program works together with other government agencies and industry to prevent and respond to spills of these materials.

You may have heard there are changes coming to a number of recycling programs following news that China plans to ban imports of certain types of recyclables from overseas. Your city, county or recycling service provider will inform you of any changes in your curbside collection service. To find out if a local recycling depot has been affected by this market disruption, contact the facility or your city, county or local recycling collection service provider to see if certain recycling items are being accepted. In the Metro area, you can call the Metro Recycling Information hotline at 503-234-3000. Your local government or recycling collection service provider should also have suggestions on how to properly clean, sort and recycle used and unwanted materials to help reduce contamination from the start.
