• Eugene’s 21-year-old Toxics Right-to-Know Program has announced that data from the 2016 Toxics Reports are now available on the Toxics Program’s website eugene-or.gov/toxics, and in printed form at the Eugene Public Library. The TRK program says the 2016 materials balance reports have been filed electronically by all 35 businesses that are required to report what toxics they are using. The TRK program requires that “businesses meeting certain criteria report their hazardous substance use to the city, that the city make that information public, and that hazardous substance users pay fees as necessary to operate the program.”
