California workshops: mattresses and packaging

CalRecycle will host a workshop on Aug. 15, 2017 in Sacramento to "gather public comments and input on a draft staff proposal for the development of the state mattress recycling baseline amount and state mattress recycling goals," as required by the California Used Mattress Recovery and Recycling Act. This is a public workshop, registeration not required, accessible in person or via webcast.
Then, on Sept. 19, CalRecycle will host a Packaging Reform Workshop. Part of their Packaging Reform policy model development process, this workshop will build upon the March 22, 2017 workshop and CalRecycle will evaluate which mandatory policy models and instruments might be best suited to increasing collection and recovery of specific packaging types.
