Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Buy Recycled

The California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) assists agencies in their implementation of waste prevention, reuse, and recycling programs to reduce waste.

The links below take you to different areas of the CalRecycle and Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) websites that provide information on how to manage various types of wastes.


An extensive list of material types and waste reduction topics is also available if you do not see the waste type you are looking for here. If you need more specific information on these waste categories, please contact your CalRecycle representative for further assistance.

Please refer to DGS Surplus Property for information regarding the reuse and disposition of state owned property and materials.

CalRecycle's Buy Recycled programs assist state agencies with meeting California's mandate to buy recycled-content products and other environmentally preferable products.
