A lot of plastic packaging is a problem in our discard stream. Markets have tightened as a result of China's National Sword policy and we are short of domestic markets for some plastic resins.

The Local Agency Technical Council and Global Recycling Council of the California Resource Recovery Association are sponsoring a workshop series along with the Solid Waste Association of North America, the California Refuse Recycling Council and the Southern California Waste Management Forum addressing problem plastics markets.

The first workshop held in March 2019 was a call to action. This June 2019 workshop will focus on the local solutions that communities, haulers, processors and manufacturers can implement.

A statewide policy workshop is planned for September 2019.

Workshop Panels
