ACTION ALERT: Recyclers Targeted by Sacramento

ACTION ALERT

Recyclers Targeted By Sacramento 

 

Governor Jerry Brown has sent his 2014/15 State Budget to the Legislature and it targets our industry.  Included in his budget are several proposed changes to the Beverage Recycling program, most notable the elimination of $26 million a year in administrative fees.

Under the Governor’s proposal, the recycling industry would be responsible for shouldering these costs on behalf of the State of California.

 

The Association of California Recycling Industries (ACRI) was formed to protect the rights of independent recyclers and strongly opposes this change.  Administrative fees are an essential component used to defray the cost of managing the state’s CRV recordkeeping and reporting requirements.  Administrative fees also assist to lessen the capitol expense burden for processers, as they typically wait 30 days or more for reimbursement of CRV payments from the state.

 

We need your help.

 

Please help send a message to Sacramento by signing our online petition today. Go to www.change.org and search “Save California’s CRV Program” or http://chn.ge/1fWfS0E (case-sensitive).  Your participation will help the industry demonstrate the large state-wide impact this change will have on the thousands of Californians employed by the recycling industry.

 

ACRI will continue to communicate with state leaders, but your voice is critical.  If you would like to get more involved with our campaign efforts, please contact Melinda Andrade at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
