Nominations are now open and will close on Monday,
June 24, 2013 at 8:00 AM PST. Applications are available at:
www.calpsc.org/join-cpsc/arrow-awards. Honorees will be selected by a distinguished panel of
business, industry and elected officials. The Awards Presentations will take
place at the
California Resource Recovery Association's Annual Conference on August 13, 2013 in Pasadena, CA.
More than six
-hundred local and
state government representatives, state legislators and industry
representatives are expected to attend.



"Product Stewardship is a policy approach
that places a shared responsibility for end
-of-life product management on producers and all entities
involved in the product chain, instead of solely being a local government
responsibility with the costs being passed on to the taxpayers and
ratepayers," said Kevin Hendrick, Del Norte Solid Waste Management
Authority (DNSWMA) and CPSC Board Chair.
