Annual Reports

Annual reports are required by General Statute and Executive Order 156 for state agency purchases of recycled content products and solid waste reduction efforts. This data is part of the complete Solid Waste Management Report, which includes solid waste reduction efforts of local governments as well. 

The reports listed below pertain to state agencies' buy recycled efforts. These reports are collected online, where agencies can also view the last few reports they filed. A materials recycled report is also required but is currently being updated and will not be collected this year. If you have questions about the reporting process, need to update your agency's contact information or would like assistance with your purchasing and recycling programs, please don't hesitate to contact Rachel Eckert at (919) 715-6505. We can also provide you with information about your agency's purchasing record, and would enjoying hearing any input on how you track your recycling purchases.
