California is a national leader in recycling and recovery programs. To reach its 75% recycling goal, California must explore ways to recover additional materials like takeout packaging and improve existing materials recovery programs.

Cups, takeout containers, pizza boxes and paper bags provide convenience to busy consumers who want their meals at the right place, at the right time. When finished, consumers should give this packaging a chance to become new products or enrich soil – rather than send to the landfill or litter on land or in waterways. Join us in working to capture the full value of the materials that many Californians use every day!
