California has passed some of the strongest rules in the Nation for single-use plastics and packaging.
The LA Times says Governor Gavin Newsom signed the bill on Thursday requiring 30% of plastic in the State be recyclable by 2028, and 65% by 2032.
It also calls for a 25% reduction in single-use plastic waste by 2032 and provides CalRecycle with the authority to increase that percentage if the amount of plastic in the economy and waste stream grows.
In the case of expanded polystyrene, that number needs to reach 25% by 2025. If the number isn’t hit, it will be banned.
