RFP: 2018 California Statewide Waste Characterization Study

Download the request for proposals.

The purpose of this Contract is for CalRecycle to acquire services that include two parts:

  1. A comprehensive disposal facility-based statewide waste characterization study to gather accurate, representative data on the disposed waste stream, and
  2. A generator-based study of food waste disposed by certain business types.

The results of the studies will be used to identify the types and amounts of materials disposed by California residents and businesses so that appropriate policies, strategies and programs can be selected to reduce their disposal. This will allow California to effectively strive toward the statutory mandates of 75 percent statewide recycling and the organics reductions required by SB 1383 (Lara, Chapter 395, Statutes of 2016) while conserving resources and minimizing the environmental, climate, and public health impacts associated with disposal.
