SALEM, OR -- Oregon is no longer a leader in recycling and waste reduction. A new study from the Environment Oregon Research and Policy Center indicates Oregon's recycling efforts continue to slide. State Director Celeste Meiffren-Swango says the latest data shows the recycling rate has dropped 4.8% since 2014.  And she says China's actions won't help because they stopped accepting American waste due to contamination. Meiffren-Swango says Oregon needs a plan to keep waste out of the environment. They're calling for a state comprehensive plan to deal with waste- especially plastics that are choking the recycling system.
