Governor Extends Executive Order on Bottle and Can Recycling
June 25, 2020
Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-70-20 which extends for 60 days the suspension of convenience zone and recycling center provisions outlined in Executive Order N-54-20. Under the extended order, beverage dealers in unserved convenience zones that are currently required to either redeem empty beverage containers or pay $100 per day to CalRecycle are relieved of this obligation until August 21, 2020. They may continue to redeem empty beverage containers at their discretion and in accordance with federal, state, and local physical distancing guidelines and safety requirements.
Recycling centers may either 1) continue to operate as per usual, 2) operate with reduced hours, or 3) be temporarily closed until August 21, 2020, without penalty or loss of certification for being closed. As such, recycling centers may redeem empty beverage containers at their discretion and in accordance with federal, state, and local physical distancing guidelines and safety requirements.
