This bill also address handling fees for recyclers. Handling fee is a subsidy to Convenient zone recyclers (recycler operating at supermarket locations).CalRecycle reduced handling fee payment on July 1, 2012. However, the handling fee cost calculation used outdated cost data. Reducing the handling fee will hurt recyclers since recent cost prices have gone up for three primary materials (glass, HDPE, PET).
