California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) 

Monthly Public Meetings

As part of CalRecycle’s commitment to maintain transparency in decision making and program development, the department conducts a public meeting on a monthly basis. The meeting provides an overview of many important pending and recently-made decisions, updates about ongoing department projects and work activities, and a general report from the department director.

CalRecycle monthly public meetings are typically held the third Tuesday of each month in the Byron Sher Auditorium at 1001 I Street in Sacramento. The meetings start at 10 a.m. and a live audio/video broadcast is generally available for participants who would like to listen in remotely. Meeting agendas are posted approximately 10 days prior to the meeting date.
