California's Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) brings together the state's recycling and waste management programs and continues a tradition of environmental stewardship.

Through landmark initiatives like the Integrated Waste Management Act and Beverage Container Recycling and Litter Reduction Act, California works toward a society that uses less, recycles more, and takes resource conservation to higher and higher levels. Our state leads the nation with an approximate 65 percent diversion rate for all materials, and today recycling supports more than 140,000 green jobs in California.

CalRecycle's vision is to inspire and challenge Californians to achieve the highest waste reduction, recycling and reuse goals in the nation. Through innovation and creativity, sound advancements in science and technology, and efficient programs that improve economic vitality and environmental sustainability, we build a stronger California.

SARC Waste Program Activities

Public Resources Code (PRC) Section 42926 requires each State agency and large State facility to submit an Annual Waste Management Report to the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle). The report must summarize each agency’s diversion programs specific to their activities that are used to meet the 50 percent diversion of solid waste goal (as required by PRC Section 42921) for the previous calendar year. This data includes the diversion program activities within the annual reports for 2011-2014. More detailed historical data can be found at http://www.calrecycle.ca.gov/State Agency/Reporting/ . In addition, the first half of the annual report that contains agency and facility information, including disposal data for each agency can be found in the associated dataset SARC Waste Disposal Data.
