Industry Asked to Help Shape CA Packaging, Plastic Pollution Law

SACRAMENTO — As California builds the rules to ensure that much of the state’s packaging is either cut or recycled, packaging producers, environmental groups and other interested parties can provide input to help design Senate Bill 54 (Allen, Chapter 75, Statutes of 2022) regulations.

Governor Newsom signed SB 54 into law last year to build California’s circular economy for packaging and plastic food service ware. The law requires:

  • 25% less plastic packaging
  • 65% of all single-use plastic packaging be recycled
  • 100% of packaging be recyclable or compostable
