June 2009 Economic Incentives Workshop

June 15, 2009

California Environmental Protection Agency Headquarters
Sacramento, California

The California Integrated Waste Management Board (Board) now known as CalRecycle hosted a June 15, 2009, workshop on economic incentives that could be used to increase diversion of material from California’s landfills. the goal of the workshop was to exchange information with stakeholders about existing and potential economic incentives for the purpose of increasing diversion of material from California’s landfills. CalRecycle staff sought additional information on economic incentives to assist jurisdictions and businesses in implementing programs and expanding or siting facilities. the workshop was intended both to educate stakeholders about non-CalRecycle incentives that we are aware of and to seek information on other incentives that could be used or developed in diverting and using more organic and recyclable materials.
