- Commodity Market Workshop for Recyclable Materials
Current global market conditions have contributed to a steady decline in commodity prices for recyclable materials and have affected the flow of recyclable materials in the state. CalRecycle invites interested stakeholders to discuss the effect of these changing markets on state programs at a public workshop on Feb. 16. The public is invited to attend in person or by webcast.
- Waste Characterization Reports
CalRecycle has recently completed two major waste characterization studies: a Disposal-Facility-Based Study, which analyzes the material disposed in the state’s waste stream; and a Commercial Generator Study, which includes data on materials disposed and recycled from the state’s commercial sector. This information is critical for waste management planning--and for reaching our recycling and greenhouse gas reduction goals.
