CalRecycle solicits stakeholder feedback on potential policy approaches to increase the source reduction, collection, and recycling of packaging as part of the department’s 75% Initiative. A follow-up to last December’s packaging workshop, CalRecycle staff will present a background paper to help guide small and large group stakeholder discussions and report-outs on a proposed definition and scope of packaging and policy approaches. The workshop will be highly interactive, so in-person attendance is encouraged.
