Free Webinar on California’s New Mandatory Recycling Measure

Published on June 8th, 2010 | by

A free webinar explains California’s new mandatory commercial recycling law… will you be in compliance?

If you run a business in California, then you are aware of California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB32). The act requires California to develop regulations that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020. It is a hot topic for businesses and environmental groups. Some say it’s badly needed. Others fear the loss of jobs. Either way, businesses are going to have to comply and adapt.

One of the measures included in AB32 is a Mandatory Commercial Recycling measure. If it feels a bit overwhelming and confusing, most likely you are not alone. This month you can participate in a free webinar to specifically discuss the challenges and implications of the new commercial recycling law and how it will affect your business.
