The department in accordance with recommendations made by the department of natural resources shall require all state agencies to establish an agency wastepaper recycling program by January 1, 1990. The director shall adopt rules which require a state agency to develop a program to ensure the recycling of the wastepaper generated by the agency. Each agency shall submit a report to the general assembly meeting in January 1990, which includes a description of the program plan and the agency's efforts to use recycled products. All state employees shall practice conservation of paper materials.

For the purposes of this section, "agency waste paper" means wastepaper or wastepaper products generated by the agency.

The rules adopted by the director shall provide for the continuation of existing state agency contracts which provide for alternative waste management not including incineration or land burial of agency waste paper.
