Subject: CA Recycling Commission's Recommendations to Address Recovery Challenges

 

I hope this message finds you well.

 

Over the past year, I have served on California's Statewide Commission on Recycling Markets and Curbside Recycling, seventeen appointed volunteers with expertise in recycling, composting and integrated waste management.  We were tasked with developing a report about how California can reverse our declining recycling rates and dramatically expand our recovery of organic materials to reduce greenhouse gas generation.  Some of you even helped us along the way.

 

That report has now been issued.  Feel free to share this with anyone you think might find it useful.

 

I believe this is newsworthy for many reasons, not the least of which being that I believe this is the first state-sanctioned report to recommend elimination of a wide variety of resource and energy extraction subsidies.  I have attached a press release from the Chair of the Commission, Heidi Sanborn.

Tedd,

I hope you are well.

Thanks for forwarding this extensive report. I will start looking through it next week.

For my current work in NJ, I would be interested to know if the report addresses the dual v single stream issue? In NJ this is a big issue as the markets are telling towns to use dual stream and save 1/3 of the tip fee for processing. Recyclers and the state Commission Market Development are gathering the data and will do the economic analysis for towns that are thinking of converting.

As you may know the reports coming from industry focus almost exclusively on single stream analysis, leaving decision-makersinthe dark about alternative approaches.

Thanks for your help. Neil
