Carpet Materials Management
California’s Carpet Stewardship Program ensures postconsumer carpet is reused, recycled, or properly disposed. CalRecycle oversees the program, which is run by Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE), the nonprofit stewardship organization created by carpet manufacturers.
- CalRecycle submitted its Differential Assessments Plan Amendment on September 20, 2023. CalRecycle’s director must approve, conditionally approve, or disapprove CARE’s Differential Assessments Plan Amendment by November 20, 2023.
- CalRecycle is soliciting applications for interested parties that wish to be considered to serve on the Carpet Stewardship Program Advisory Committee. See the solicitation letter for instructions on how to apply. Applications are due to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 3, 2023.
- CARE submitted its 2022 Annual Report to CalRecycle on September 1, 2023.
