Webinar: Complying with California’s RPPC Law
As a product or container manufacturer, you want to deliver innovative, effective product packaging to maximize sales. You may also be responsible for using Rigid Plastic Packaging Containers (RPPC) with less plastic or an increased percentage of recycled plastic. With this responsibility comes the need for knowledge.
To assist product or container manufacturers with their understanding of the RPPC law, CalRecycle held an informational webinar that particpants could attend on July 23 or July 24, 2013. The webinar:
- Reviewed California’s RPPC law.
- Provided examples of RPPCs.
- Presented online tools to assist product manufacturers to determine if they use RPPC that fall under California’s RPPC law.
- Covered common questions raised by a variety of industries.
The following videos are chapters from CalRecycle’s 2013 webinar on complying with the RPPC law. The full webinar is also available further below.
