CalRecycle Expands Business Incentive Program

CalRecycle Logo

The California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery is set to announce the addition of Calaveras County as the state’s 40th Recycling Market Development Zone (RMDZ) at the department’s July 2018 monthly public meeting. The designation expands businesses incentives, including low-interest loans, free marketing, and technical assistance to companies located in the zone that use recycled materials to make new products.

CalRecycle is also set to announce a $1.5 million RMDZ loan to a Merced County tire recycling business. The loan will allow the company to increase production and recycle 24,000 tons of California waste tires each year to produce crumb rubber for road pavement and repair projects. The expansion is expected to create 20 new jobs.

Also at the monthly meeting, CalRecycle is scheduled to provide updates on the state’s Beverage Container Recycling Program and the Covered Electronic Waste Program.

The agenda also includes an update about local compliance with California’s Mandatory Commercial Recycling law. The 2011 statute requires California businesses that generate 4 cubic yards or more of commercial solid waste per week to arrange for recycling services.
