Buy Recycled Program

The California Integrated Waste Management Board's Buy Recycled Program promotes the State's policy to 'buy green.'

Recycled-Content Trash Bag Program

The California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB) monitors the provisions of the Public Resources Code with respect to plastic trash bag mandates. Manufacturers and wholesalers selling trash bags in California must meet the mandates and be certified annually by CIWMB before State of California agencies and departments can purchase from them.

Newsprint Program

California’s newsprint law mandates the use of a specified amount of recycled-content newsprint by printers and publishers located in California. These newsprint consumers must certify the amount of recycled-content newsprint consumed annually to the CIWMB. BuyRecycled Newsprint

Rigid Plastic Packaging Containers (RPPC)

The Board oversees the Rigid Plastic Packaging Container Act of 1991, which requires that RPPCs meet one of several criteria designed to reduce the amount of plastic being landfilled. The Board maintains a manufacturers’ certification program, encourages market development, and conducts outreach activities promoting recycling of plastics. BuyRecycled Plastic

Cooperative Recycled Paper Purchasing

The Board supports activities to disseminate information about this coalition, which provides opportunities to purchase recycled paper at a discounted cost through cooperative purchase agreements. BuyRecycled Paper
