Continuation of CalRecycle’s Packaging Reform policy model development process.  This workshop will build upon the policies discussed at the March 22, 2017 Packaging Reform Workshop.  

Given that there is not a one-size-fits-all policy solution for all packaging, the Department is choosing to evaluate which mandatory policy models and instruments might be best suited to increasing collection and recovery of specific packaging types. 

In order to provide stakeholders with early opportunity to provide feedback and help make this workshop discussion more robust, CalRecycle is soliciting stakeholder input on potential screening criteria and data sources that will be used to evaluate each criterion for the purpose of evaluating and identifying packaging types.  CalRecycle will consider revising these criteria based on feedback received by August 4, 2017 via

Feedback received will help CalRecycle finalize workshop documents that will be posted prior to the workshop date.
