California heads to decision point on tough plastic laws

A new industry coalition, Californians for Recycling and the Environment, formed in June and also opposes the single-use plastics bill as currently outlined.

"The targets set by this bill are simply infeasible, do nothing to encourage the use of recycled content to build up our domestic recycling market and provides no long-term funding strategy to support a robust, effective recycling system," said CRE spokesman Micah Grant. "While we share the mutual goal of protecting the environment, the Legislature should hit the pause button to ensure consumers will still be able to afford the products they've come to rely on and that the legislation can accomplish what it sets out to do."
