California’s environmentalists to discuss plastics recycling rules

HOUSTON, May 30, 2017 (PCW) –- Top environmental regulators from CalRecycle, California’s Department of Resource Recycling and Recovery, will discuss the future regulatory climate impacting plastics recycling in California at The Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) meeting in Sacramento, CA on June 6-8.

Possible future regulatory actions impacting recycling in California and ultimately other regions of the US, such as extended producer responsibility, product bans, changes in the resin identification code, will be addressed. Updates on existing programs, such as Mandatory Recycled Content, degradable additives, product bans, the Plastics Market Development Program, the California Refund Value (CRV), and enforcement of California’s Rigid Plastic Container Packaging (RPPC) law, will also be given.

“We feel these presentations represent a unique opportunity for our industry to hear directly from the regulatory community on issues which could impact the direction of plastics recycling for years to come. As a bellwether state, California sets the tone for the entire country,” said Steve Alexander, APR’s Executive Officer.

“As we have seen in the past, regulations passed in California are often duplicated in other states,” said J. Scott Saunders, General Manager of KW Plastics Recycling and APR’s Board Chair.
