California’s war on plastic waste
SACRAMENTO – (INT) – The war against plastic waste is becoming front and center in California.

State law will require that by 2032 most plastic packaging and plastic food ware is recycled, and that producers make 25% less of single-use plastic materials.

CalRecycle is reaching out to seek input as it writes the regulations for California’s Plastic Pollution Prevention and Producer Responsibility Act.

Issues center on the recycling rate, enforcement and a producer responsibility plan for how California will meet the goals.
