Grants to Oregon tribal governments, counties, cities, metropolitan service districts, regional parks districts, sanitary districts, county service districts, and regional air quality control authorities for the planning of solid waste management projects. Funding is intended to support plans that ensure the safety and sound management of the disposal, reduction, recovery, and reuse of waste materials across the State.
DEQ’s Materials Management Program funds plans that support Oregon’s 2050 Vision for sustainable materials management (see Supporting Documents below). Local governments may receive grant funds to develop their own plan or may contract with private individuals, consulting firms, nonprofit organizations or others.
The two types of Planning grants are as follows:
- A Solid Waste Management Plan is a local guide to managing the recovery and disposal of solid waste. These planning efforts help ensure safe management of waste and provide a path toward achieving wasteshed and statewide recovery goals and an opportunity for community engagement in helping to reduce solid waste. This type of plan is required if a local jurisdiction or private party intends to build a new solid waste facility.
- A Materials Management Plan may incorporate the Solid Waste Management Plan but more holistically addresses impacts of materials across their full lifecycle, including design, production and use in addition to recovery and disposal of discards. For example, a Materials Management Plan might include strategies to reduce generation of waste or use of toxics, reuse of products or purchase of more durable products.
