CalRecycle rejects CARE's stewardship plan, again

At the May 15, 2018 public meeting of CalRecycle, CalRecycle disapproved the latest Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) five-year stewardship plan (PDF). CARE can resubmit their plan within 60 days and address CalRecycle's findings, that CARE's funding mechanism and planned grants and subsidies do not comply with statutory requirements. Documents related to the May 15 decision are on CalRecycle's public notice website. A timeline of the carpet stewardship program status details the decisions and actions since the December 2016 disapproval of CARE's plan, including the April 25, 2018 decision penalizing CARE $821,250 for non-compliance in 2013, 2014, and 2015 (including $365,000, or $1000 per day, for 2015).
