SB 1021 (Padilla, 2007-08) Multifamily/Container Recycling Grants


Extends multifamily recycling grants to 2008 and increases funding from $5 million to $15 million.


Position and Status. 
CAW supports. SB 1021 was signed by Gov. Schwarzenegger!

This one-year program would use a small portion of the unclaimed CRV funds to help fund increased recycling by placing recycling receptacles in multifamily dwellings.

Most residents of multifamily dwellings do not have access to convenient recycling and this has resulted in much lower diversion rates compared to those living in single-family homes. SB 1021, along with CAW-sponsored AB 548, will help ensure that more Californians have the opportunity to recycle.
