California Recycling:  Keeping Up With the Chasing Arrows

January 25, 2023 at 9:40am10:40am (PST)
Association of Corporate Counsel

Sarah Bell, Elizabeth Dorsi, and Don Sobelman along with guest speaker, Ryan Stifter from Roux, will present on "California Recycling: Keeping Up With the Chasing Arrows" at the Association of Corporate Counsel Race to the Finish virtual conference on January 25.
 
California is leading the way in new laws and regulations aimed at recycling and ensuring manufacturers and retailers are making the right products and claims. State agencies, like the California Attorney General’s Office, are also taking aim at the plastics industry for what it claims is a campaign of deception as to recyclability claims. Join our panel of experts to discuss these new laws and lawsuit trends on these issues. From SB 343’s restrictions on the use of symbols (like the classic chasing arrows) and other statements regarding recyclability, to SB 54’s requirements as to the recyclability or compost-ability of packaging, this panel will provide critical information to any manufacturer or seller of products in California or nationwide.
