Backers of a citizens’ initiative that would go even further than the failed bill have submitted more than 870,000 signatures to quality their proposal for the 2022 ballot, and are awaiting verification from Secretary of State Alex Padilla. Among other things, the initiative would require all single-use plastics to be recyclable, reusable, refillable, or compostable by 2030, and reduce the use of single-use plastic packaging and foodware by 25% by 2030. Overall, California trailed only No. 1 Vermont and No. 2 Oregon in terms of recycling, according to the study compiled primarily from federal data by LawnStarter, a national lawn-care company whose research wing is gaining attention by producing weekly reports that often are only tangentially related to lawn care. Company officials said that their interest in waste management stemmed from issues related to yard waste, and that the study’s release on Wednesday, Nov. 11, was timed to promote America Recycles Day on Sunday, Nov. 15. California’s high ranking is largely a result of a bevy of state legislation, including a statewide plastic bag ban, beverage container deposit laws, food waste disposal limitations, electronic recycling programs and mandatory recycling requirements. The only recycling issue California doesn’t rate high on, legislatively, is the current absence of a statewide ban look at this site on yard debris ending up in landfills. But starting in 2022, California regulations will restrict yard and food waste from landfills, part of an effort to reduce methane emissions.
