AB 1390 (Huffman, 2007-08) Solid Waste

This landmark bill was a combination of various waste reduction, recycling, and composting policies designed to divert more materials from landfills to higher and better uses.

Position and Status. 
CAW Supports. AB 1390 was never brought up for a vote on the floor of the Senate.

AB 1390 presents a package of policies that will move California forward from landfilling to waste reduction, recycling, and composting, by increasing the local government diversion requirement to 60% and establishing a statewide diversion goal of 75%. AB 1390 will also provide the tools necessary for local governments and the CIWMB to achieve these requirements through a commercial recycling program, an organics management incentive program, an illegal dumping program and additional funding for the CIWMB.
