September 25, 2023 (press release) –

CalRecycle will hold a public workshop (see public notice) to consult with the public, the regulated community, third-party contractors, and other interested parties to solicit feedback on some of the requirements outlined in SB 54 (Allen, Chapter 75, Statutes of 2022). The workshops will cover the following non-regulatory topics.

September 27, 2023 Workshop 

Morning Session (10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.):

Topic I: Second Draft of Covered Material Categories List
CalRecycle has updated the draft covered material category list that was presented in the June workshop.

Afternoon Session (1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.):

Topic II: Needs Assessment
An overview of two upcoming proposed studies for the required needs assessment: the SB 54 Producers and Source Reduction Baseline Study, and the Recyclable Material End Market Study.
CalRecycle has provided discussion documents (available on our website) for the public to review workshop concepts in advance of the workshop. The purpose of these documents is to provide interested parties with an overall outline of what is going to be discussed, and the specific feedback that CalRecycle plans on soliciting from workshop participants and in written public comments.

The workshop will have a one-hour break for lunch at noon. The full agenda is attached to this email.
