  • CalRecycle March Monthly Public Meeting

    small CalRecycle logo

    Show up or tune in to CalRecycle’s monthly public meeting and find out what we’re up to!

    Hear about our upcoming education campaign to increase recycling and reduce contamination in curbside collections, so that material you’re tossing in your bins can actually be recycled into great new things.

    We’ll also discuss some recent grant awards, including a few to support our Beverage Container Recycling (CRV) Program, and a few more to clean up sites under our Solid Waste Disposal and Codisposal Site Cleanup Program.

    Another grant, to Yolo County, will support a project that will use 1.1 million passenger tires to offset the amount of wood chips and soil that would otherwise need to be used as ground cover at its new 20-acre waste-processing facility. That’s quite a few tires that will be put to good use rather than landfilled or illegally stockpiled. Remember that huge pile of tires that burned for years? We do—in fact, that fire was the impetus for our waste tire management program.

    CalRecycle March 2019 Public Meeting
    10 a.m. Tuesday, March 19
    Byron Sher Auditorium, CalEPA Building
