  • We’re in studio with the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality’s Peter Spendelow to talk about what processors and municipalities around the state are responding after China stopped accepting the state’s co-mingled recycling. We also talk with Recology Ashland’s Gary Blake about how they’re handing the changing market. And we’re taking listener calls live on the air. Our number is 1-888-665-5865. (Note: this number does not have an associated voicemail.)
  • “Think Out Loud” is 10 years old today. We’ll introduce our plans to celebrate this year and listen back to some of the last 10 years of the show.
