Description:

What are product manufacturers and brand owners willing to do, on an industry-wide level, to recover their product packaging to help California reach the statewide goal of 75% source reduction, recycling, and composting by 2020?  Come and hear industry share its commitments and contribute to this important discussion.

 

CalRecycle’s Manufacturers Challenge represents an opportunity for product manufacturers and brand owners to collectively come together and demonstrate their commitment to increasing the recovery of their product packaging in California by committing to achieve a goal of 50% reduction in packaging disposed in landfills by the year 2020 and proposing a voluntary plan to meet that goal.

 

The Manufacturers Challenge builds upon more than two years of public workshops and discussions focused on better understanding the complexities, different stakeholder perspectives, and potential policy approaches associated with increasing packaging recovery in California as one of many important strategies to help meet California’s statewide goal of 75% source reduction, recycling, and composting by 2020.
