What’s Happening…

  • Due to the recent unusual weather season in California, many packaging companies have cut back on new production. The overall economic situation in California and around the world has also hampered buying from local reclaimers. PRCC wants to caution suppliers when buying from their customers; PET markets are unstable.

  • Business owners and taxpayers impacted by California’s winter storms are now eligible for emergency tax relief from late payment interest and penalties.

  • SB1013: Follow CalRecycle’s website to know how and when you can start applying for these benefits.

    • $220M grant money will be allocated for startup cost for recycling centers, Mobile recycling, reverse vending machines and bag drop-off programs.

    • $30M for startup loans for processors and recyclers.  These will be forgivable loans if you meet their requirements.

    • $40M for Quality Improvement payments for Thermoforms.

  • Recycling Partnership Links:
