GlobalPSC Member – California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle)

Posted by GlobalPSC at 12:44 pm, May 30th, 2013Comments3

We are pleased to have the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) as the latest Government Member of the Global Product Stewardship Council.

CalRecycle brings together the state’s recycling and waste management programs and continues a tradition of environmental stewardship.

Through the landmark initiatives of the 1980’s such as the Integrated Waste Management Act and Beverage Container Recycling and Litter Reduction Act, California has gone from single-digit recycling rates, sparse infrastructure, and few end markets for recyclables to a diversion rate equivalent of 65%, and a beverage container recycling rate of 82%. This was accomplished with the hard work and dedication of all of CalRecycle’s partners in this endeavor including local jurisdictions, the waste and recycling industry, and the public who embraced the new programs.

Now, California’s Legislature and Governor Brown, through enactment of AB 341, (Chapter 476, Statutes of 2011) have directed CalRecycle to propose a plan for the next step in the evolution of California’s solid waste stream management. The law establishes a goal for California that not less than 75% of the solid waste generated be source-reduced, recycled or composted by 2020. It also requires CalRecycle to provide a report to the Legislature by January 1, 2014 detailing strategies to achieve that policy goal.

CalRecycle’s vision is to inspire and challenge Californians to achieve the highest waste reduction, recycling, and reuse goals in the nation. Through innovation and creativity, sound advancements in science and technology, and efficient programs that improve economic vitality and environmental sustainability, we build a stronger California.

Call2Recycle is the only no cost rechargeable battery and cellphone collection program in North America. Since 1996, Call2Recycle has diverted over 100 million pounds (45 million kilograms) of batteries from the solid waste stream and established a network of 30,000 collection sites throughout the U.S. and Canada. Advancing green business practices and environmental sustainability, Call2Recycle is the most active voice promoting eco-safe reclamation and recycling of rechargeable batteries and cellphones. It is the first program of its kind to receive the Responsible Recycling Practices Standard (R2) certification, as well as e-Steward recognition from the Basel Action Network (BAN).  Founded in 1994, Call2Recycle is operated by the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC), a non-profit organization funded by product manufacturers across the globe committed to environmentally-sound recycling of rechargeable batteries and cellphones. These manufacturers place the RBRC recycling seal on their rechargeable products and batteries, informing users that they are recyclable.
