Jurisdictions face increasing difficulties in
funding their materials management activities (such as recycling and
composting), and finding new models for local funding will be necessary to
sustain these activities into the future.
Streamlining and incentivizing local permitting and siting of
infrastructure also is needed if we are to be ready to build the new and
expanded manufacturing (from recycled materials) infrastructure in California
that will be necessary to achieve the 75% goal.
This is the initial workshop in CalRecycle’s effort
to explore local case studies, samples, and strategies for the funding and
siting of recycling programs, activities, and infrastructure. Staff will briefly review various approaches
and concepts that already have been brought forth by stakeholders and solicit additional
ideas on this topic with respect to local-level needs and financial resources
(state-level funding and siting assistance is not the focus of this workshop). Ample
time will be available for comments and questions. This is not a policy workshop.
you are unable to participate in this workshop, please send comments to 75Percent@calrecycle.ca.gov and also be apprised that there will be additional webinars
and activities on this topic in the next several months.
