California Plastic Bottle Legislation Sent to Governor for Signature

Legislation previously approved by the Assembly was passed August 30, 2020 by the California Senate and sent to the governor for signature – According to a story AB 793 would require that “… all plastic bottles covered by the state’s container redemption program average at least 15% post-consumer resin starting in 2022 … That recycled-content mandate increases to 25% in 2025 and 50% in 2030 … manufacturers missing the targets are subject to penalty fees … The money is deposited into a new ‘Recycling Enhancement Penalty Account’ and is to be spent on recycling, infrastructure, collection and processing of plastic beverage bottles …” #Recycling #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePackaging
