Description

The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) is proposing emergency regulations to amend Title 14, California Code of Regulations, Division 2, Chapter 5, Subchapter 12, Section 2975 that lays out the reasonable financial return calculation for processing payments. This change will help support beverage container recycling in California by establishing, for calendar year 2022, a reasonable financial return of ten percent when calculating processing payments instead of the discontinued Dun and Bradstreet index as stated in regulations. This change will provide a balance between the risk associated with operating a beverage container recycling center under current market conditions and a return on investment for operators. The emergency regulations were approved by the Office of Administrative Law effective on December 17, 2021 and expiring on June 16, 2022.
