SB 343: Accurate Recycling Labels

Increasing recycling in California first requires accurate labels on recyclables. The law outlaws manufacturers and others from selling products or packaging labeled as recyclable unless the items are regularly collected and processed for recycling in the state.

SB 54: Plastic Pollution Prevention and Packaging Producer Responsibility Act

Packaging is about 25% of waste landfilled in California. Senate Bill 54 (SB 54, Allen, Chapter 75, Statutes of 2022) established the Plastic Pollution Prevention and Packaging Producer Responsibility Act.
This law sets the first specific source reduction goals in US history, a critical step to build a circular, reuse economy.
