[Archives] Use of Correct Department Name

CalRecycle maintains archived information on its website as a record of its activities by the public and CalRecycle staff.


On August 2, 2023, the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) approved the changes to California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 14, sections 2000, 2095, and 2130 as meeting the requirements of CCR, Title 1, section 100 for changes without regulatory effect.

On July 28, 2009, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed Sen. Bill No. 63 (SB 63) into law. SB 63, Chapter 21 of the Statutes 2009, severed the Division of Recycling from the Department of Conservation and merged it with the abolished Integrated Waste Management Board into the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery.

The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery’s Division of Recycling succeeded to and is vested with all the authority, duties, powers, purposes, responsibilities, and jurisdiction in the performance of a function carrying out Division 12.1 of the Public Resources Code (Pub. Res. Code Sec. 40401(a)(2). The regulations CalRecycle proposes to change without regulatory effect implement, clarify, or make specific provisions of Division 12.1, commencing with section 14500 of the Public Resources Code.

The changes to sections 2000, 2095, and 2130 replaced “Department of Conservation” with the corrected name “Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery.”
