Recycler Operating and Recordkeeping Workshop

The Recycler Operating and Recordkeeping Workshop is for recycling center operators and their employees. You must have at least one operational recycling center to attend this free workshop.

The goal for each session is to provide in-depth operating and recordkeeping requirements for the California Beverage Container Recycling Program in the following areas:

  • How to properly inspect material
  • Receipts and Logs
  • Daily Summary requirements
  • Shipping Reports (using DORIIS)
  • Signage requirements
  • Notice requirements
  • Out-of-State Material
  • Fraud detection

We conduct two half-day sessions. The morning session is presented in English, while the afternoon workshop is in Spanish. All attendees must pre-register for the workshops. When registering, remember to submit one registration form per session. Register for workshop.
