  • California Resource Recovery Association: A Culture of Zero Waste

    CalRecycle staff speaking at podiums, speaking to conference members, and an outdoor group photo.

    Since 1974, the nonprofit organization California Resource Recovery Association has been working toward a more sustainable California through promoting product stewardship, waste prevention, and recycling. The group’s annual conference for which we are a sponsor, brings together cities, counties, councilmembers, businesses, nonprofit organizations, and industry professionals to network and discuss environmental issues. Every year, CalRecycle staff and guest speakers offer a cornucopia of information about policies, practices, and studies at comprehensive educational and plenary sessions.

    At this year’s conference, we participated in four panels on topics ranging from e-waste and grants to statewide recycling to educate attendees about upcoming regulations, funding programs, and waste management practices. We even got to meet Ryan Hickman, the 10-year-old mini-mogul who has taken the recycling world by storm by starting his own business at the age of 3! Other speakers included Timothy Bouldry of the International Solid Waste Association, which runs a scholarship program for children living in dumpsites across the world; and Froilan Grate, who is the executive director of GAIA Philippines, which educates and promotes community-based waste management and construction of material recovery facilities.

  • Through the Lens: A Photographic Look at CalRecycle's Programs

    You’ve heard it before--a picture is worth a thousand words! And at CalRecycle we have thousands of pictures (you don’t have to do the math) because we have a multitude of programs, events, and projects we’re constantly working on. As the unofficial photographer here at CalRecycle headquarters, I’m fortunate enough to witness and document the inner workings of the department. Here is a small sampling of my favorite photos from the past five years. If you like what you see, don’t forget to follow California EPA on Instagram--we contribute images often and you can see what our partner departments are up to as well!
