California's 75% Recycling Initiative

The State of California has proposed a new 75% Recycling Initiative with the hopes of a 75% source reduction of solid waste by the year 2020. Instead of focusing primarily on local diversion, the law calls for the state and the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) to take a statewide approach to decreasing California’s reliance on landfills. CalRecycle has been tasked by the Legislature to examine how extensions of existing efforts, as well as new strategies, can be combined to reach that policy goal.
