The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) will hold a public workshop on September 27, 2023 to consult with the public, the regulated community, third-party contractors, and other interested persons to solicit feedback on some of the requirements outlined in SB 54 (Allen, Chapter 75, Statutes of 2022).
The topics of this workshop will be the needs assessment and second draft of the covered material category. The afternoon session of the workshop will focus on upcoming contracted studies as part of the needs assessment. We encourage organizations that are interested in bidding on upcoming contract solicitations for the needs assessment to attend this portion of the workshop.

At the public workshop, CalRecycle will be presenting statutory overviews of the various topics as well as non-regulatory concepts. CalRecycle will provide discussion documents prior to the workshop to give interested parties time to review the content in advance.
