Oregonians appear to be holding on to stuff longer or recycling more, according to a new report released by the State Department of Environmental Quality. Mary Lou Perry with the DEQ says Oregon recovered more than 50% of the municipal waste generated last year, the highest amount per-capital since 1992. And waste disposal rates also dropped to the lowest level in 20 years. Perry says waste disposal tends to drop when the economy is slow but says trends suggest people are doing more to keep trash out of landfills.
