AB 341: Waste not, want not

 
CLCV Supported
Passed Senate Floor 23-13 (9/8/2011)
Passed Assembly Floor 49-29 (9/8/2011)
Signed by Governor (10/6/2011)

In 1989, when California enacted landmark legislation (AB 939, Sher) to divert 50% of solid waste from landfills, it spurred the development of an extensive job-creating recycled materials collection infrastructure. Currently California leads the nation in diverting 54% of all of its waste. This year's AB 341 (Chesbro) aims to reduce more than 15 million tons of pollution and waste annually by establishing a new statewide goal of 75% source reduction, recycling, and composting by 2020
