Report

This report was prepared by staff of the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle). It analyzes studies on the connection between recycling and job creation to project estimated job creation in California under AB 341, which set a goal of achieving a statewide 75 percent waste diversion rate by 2020. Achieving that goal will require the recycling, composting, or source-reduction of an additional 23.5 million tons of recyclables annually, which could add more than 100,000 new full-time and part-time jobs in manufacturing and collection/processing industries.
