Use of recycled products when economically feasible

The Oregon Department of Administrative Services shall review and work with state agencies to develop procurement specifications that encourage the use of recycled products whenever economically feasible, if the quality of a recycled product is functionally equal to the same product manufactured with virgin resources, including but not limited to recycled paper, recycled oil and recycled PETE products. Except for specifications that have been established to preserve the public health and safety, all procurement specifications shall be established in a manner that encourages the procurement of recycled products.
