Plastics collected for recycling

 Posted: 1:25 PM September 10, 2013

Jackson County's Plastic Roundup is set for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, and Saturday, Oct. 26., at The Expo, 1 Peninger Road, Central Point.

The roundup will accept hard and soft plastics despite China's tightened restrictions on imports of plastic and other waste items, roundup organizers said. The event will go on as planned because markets and recyclers outside China are still accepting plastic, and local recyclers have a business relationship with a company called Agilyx that extracts pretroleum from the plastic.

Event officials will only accept clean, presorted materials.
