Webinar: Senate Bill 54 (Allen, 2022)
How California’s new single-use packaging and plastic pollution prevention law will impact local governments

September 14, 2023

California’s recycling landscape is about to undergo another seismic shift. Local governments played a key role in ushering in this change, but there’s still plenty of work left. 

Under SB 54 (Allen, 2022), all single-use plastics and packaging sold in California must be recyclable or compostable by 2032. Producers must reimburse local governments for the costs of collecting and processing these materials. The new law will also raise $5 billion from the plastics industry to help mitigate the impacts of plastic pollution, particularly in disadvantaged communities.

In partnership between Cal Cities, StopWaste, and the Rural County Representatives of California, CSAC is offering an overview of SB 54 and the next steps in the regulatory process.

Thursday, Oct. 5 • 10:00-11:30 a.m.

Registration must be completed by noon on Oct. 4, 2023.
