The Product Stewardship for Carpets Law (Public Resources Code Sections 42970-72983), as amended by Assembly Bill 1158 (Carpet Recycling, Chu, 2017), requires the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) to appoint an Advisory Committee to provide recommendations to a carpet manufacturer or stewardship organization and to the Department on carpet stewardship plans, plan amendments, and annual reports.  The Director of CalRecycle shall appoint members to the Advisory Committee, which may be comprised of individuals in the environmental community, the solid waste industry, and local government representatives involved in the collection, processing, and recycling of carpet, and other interested parties.  The Director shall appoint one member to the Advisory Committee who represents carpet manufacturers and at least one member who represents either the Southern California Resilient Floor and Decorative Covering Crafts Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee or the Northern California Floor Covering Finishing Trades Institute Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee.  CalRecycle is soliciting applications until November 10, 2017.  CalRecycle intends that the Advisory Committee be in place as of January 1, 2018 (i.e., the effective date of AB 1158).
