Californians Against Waste Birthday Bash

Every Summer in Sacramento, Californians Against Waste brings together policymakers, recycling innovators and community leaders to celebrate its 1977 birthday. 

For nearly four decades, Californians Against Waste has been involved in the crafting of nearly every major successful recycling policy in the state. But we didn't accomplish anything on our own. We've needed the passion, support and expertise of thousands of our members, environmentalists, recycling entrepreneurs and lawmakers. Thanks to everyone who has helped make recycling so successful.

On Wednesday, August 26, Californians Against Waste held its 38th Annual Birthday Bash, and honored two legislators who have made recycling a priority in their legislative agenda. Click here for pictures of the event.
