DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

During a March 11, 2020 meeting, Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC) staff asked member counties for letters of support for AB 2612.  RCRC has joined with Los Angeles County and the California State Association of Counties to co-sponsor Assembly Bill 2612 (Maienschein). AB 2612 continuously appropriates $200 million annually from Cap-and-Trade Auction Revenues, with $100 million allocated to in-state solid waste recycling projects and $100 million allocated to in-state organic waste recycling projects. $50 million of the organic waste allocation is dedicated to local agencies for organic waste management and implementation. $10 million of the solid waste allocation shall be made available to cities and counties for beverage container recycling and litter cleanup activities.
