Recycling Line Sorting Image

In June 2021, California’s Statewide Commission on Recycling Markets & Curbside Recycling released their first Annual Report with 30 policy recommendations to help improve the state’s troubled recycling system. The Report, which has been delivered to California legislators and regulators, includes recommended policies to increase markets, and reduce contamination and costs in the recycling system. Some policies are basic safety recommendations to eliminate batteries and gas cylinders in waste streams that start fires in the system, where other policies request ending subsidies that undermine recovery economics.
