Recycling Materials Program
State Surplus administers the Oklahoma State Recycling and Recycled Materials Procurement Act (OSRRMPA) [74 O.S. §85.50 et seq.] OSRRMPA mandates that "(CAM) shall coordinate recycling efforts among the state public entities.
CAM outsourced recycling through a competitively bid contract that applies only to CAM state office buildings in the Capitol Complex and Tulsa. State public entities located outside the Capitol Complex and Tulsa State Office Buildings must establish individual recycling programs through similar contracts. Facilities Services makes available Paper Recycling Specifications (Recycling - Form 003) to assist public entities with the development of a recycling program or recycling contract.
Agencies must file an annual report that compiles the results of its recycling program for the fiscal year with CAM/State Surplus. The Annual Recycled Materials Report (Recycling - Form 001) shall be submitted no later than Nov. 1 each year. To assist CAM with coordination of the statewide recycling program, each agency is required to appoint a "Recyclable Materials Coordinator" who acts as the primary contact between the agency and CAM in matters related to recycling. Appointment of the coordinator or updating new information for an existing coordinator shall be submitted to CAM/State Surplus on the Recyclable Materials Coordinator Registration form (Recycling - Form 002).
Each year, CAM compiles the recycling information filed by state public entities and files a report by Jan. 15 with the Governor, Senate President Pro Tempore and Speaker of the House of Representatives.
