Rulemaking Archives

The following CalRecycle rulemakings were approved by the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) or suspended/terminated/discontinued before completion of the rulemaking process. These archives contain the more important rulemaking documents, such as the Text of Proposed Regulations, Notice of Rulemaking, Initial and Final Statements of Reasons (ISOR/FSOR), Plain English Summary, Responses to Comments, and Final Text of Approved Regulations. They also include information about stakeholder input (workshops, comment periods, etc.). Note that not all of the documents for older rulemakings are available in electronic media.

These rulemaking files are listed by the year of their approval by OAL (or suspension/termination/discontinuation of rulemaking). Select a year below to view the list of rulemaking files approved that year. Note: Certain past rulemaking efforts can be found on pages for beverage container emergency regulations (pre-2010) and for beverage container regulations (pre-2011).

These are unofficial rulemaking files. There may be slight differences from the final text of the regulations approved by OAL. You can review all current CalRecycle regulations at its regulations website, or on the OAL website.
