Packaging materials management in California

CalRecycle continued an ongoing dialog process begun in 2016 to reduce packaging waste and increase recycling. Resource Recycling covered the March 2017 meeting and its history, where stakeholders continued to "discuss the possibility of requiring producers to play a role in the end-of-life management of packaging materials... and the merits of extended producer responsibility (EPR) efforts." CalRecycle "stressed they are not at the point of developing a legislative policy."
