As the state moves forward implementing mandatory statewide commercial recycling regulations, the responsible regulatory agency, CalRecycle, is conducting a workshop to seek stakeholder input. As part of the state’s regulate greenhouse gas emissions under the landmark AB 32, the proposed mandatory commercial recycling rules attempt to reduce greenhouse gases by focusing waste reduction within the commercial sector and requiring businesses and multifamily units of 5 units or more that produce more than four cubic yards of solid waste per week to recycle.
At the workshop, staff will present the results of additional economic analyses done for the proposed regulation and changes to the regulatory language since January. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 19, 2011, at 1:30 p.m. at the CalEPA Building in Sacramento. Participation via webcast will be available. Click here to register for the webcast.
Since this regulation may have a major impact on our members, we encourage those interested and knowledgeable in this area to review the regulations and either participate in the workshop or provide us with feedback and concerns to carry to the meeting on your behalf.
