Thank you for considering support of our work.

Californians Against Waste is the nation's oldest, largest and most effective non-profit environmental organization working to conserve resources and prevent pollution through waste reduction and recycling.

In large part through CAW's efforts, California is the nation's leader in waste prevention and recycling. And many of the policies pioneered by CAW in California have been emulated by other states and nations.

But there is much more that we can and must be doing.

  • Californians continue to dispose of more than 40 million tons of waste, much of it recyclable or compostable.
  • More than one-third of California households still don't have access to effective and convenient curbside recycling.
  • Plastic litter and waste is no longer merely an aesthetic nuisance, but a serious water pollutant and a deadly threat to the marine environment.
  • And most recently, the State of California was forced to ban the disposal of the more than 500,000 tons of consumer electronics due to the presence of toxic heavy metals and other hazards.

With your generous contributions, CAW can build on our current campaigns to: Expand Opportunities for Recycling; Reduce Plastic Litter and Waste; and Phase out and Recycle Toxic Electronics.
