On Jan. 17, CalRecycle approved its Mandatory Commercial Recycling Regulations. These regulations, which were previously being considered by the California Air Resources Board under AB 32, require that all local jurisdictions in California implement a commercial solid waste recycling program comprising education, outreach and monitoring of businesses. Jurisdictions are also required to report on the progress achieved in implementing its commercial recycling program. For background, please read the Oct. 21 CA Cities Advocate story "Mandatory Commercial Recycling Regulations to Now Be Adopted by CalRecycle."
