For more than 20 years, CalRecycle has administered contracts for the collection of certain recyclable materials (scrap paper and scrap metal) for State agencies in certain geographic areas. In July 2017, the Legislature changed the Public Contract Code Sections 12165 – 12167.1 to provide State agencies with the authority to make their own decisions regarding their recycling programs. As a result of these changes State agencies can do the following:
- Recycling Contracts: State agencies have the ability to contract for recycling services without seeking prior approval from CalRecycle.
- Recycling Revenues: State agencies have the ability to retain all revenues generated by recycling activities for reinvestment into recycling and composting programs.
To allow State agencies to exercise the flexibility and authority afforded by the recent statutory changes, the remaining CalRecycle managed contracts ended or will end on the expiration dates listed below. They will not be renewed by CalRecycle, so State agencies can enter into their own contracts. All impacted state agencies were notified and offered assistance with their transition. State agencies who need to expand or replace recycling services may contact their assigned CalRecycle Local Assistance staff for assistance.
