CARE to work with CalRecycle to develop stewardship plan

Oct '10
A whole new phase of carpet recycling was ushered, when California signed into law California's AB 2398, Carpet Stewardship Bill. The bill, which was sponsored by Assembly Speaker John A. Perez, (D-Los Angeles) represents new thinking in the area of product stewardship in that it incentivizes carpet recycling by rewarding those entrepreneurs and inventors who produce marketable products made from post-consumer carpet.

The bill generates revenue through an initial assessment of 5-cents per square yard of carpet sold in California. Further, manufacturers -either singly or as a group - will be required to establish a stewardship plan with the state for implementing carpet recycling. Stewardship plans will encompass consumer education efforts, the assessment of fees, and progress measurement and reporting.

To develop their required stewardship plan, manufacturers will work with California regulatory agencies with the help of the Carpet America Recovery Effort, or CARE. Founded in 2002, CARE is a non-profit organization comprising manufacturers, recycling entrepreneurs, and government environmental agencies that works to find market-based solutions for recycling carpet and diverting it from landfills. CARE is listed in the AB 2398 legislation as the carpet industry's designated stewardship organization.

CARE will begin working immediately with CalRecycle to develop a stewardship plan that will increase carpet recycling through the funding mechanism that is established in the bill. The Carpet Stewardship Bill is unique from other Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) legislation in that it provides monetary incentives for entrepreneurs and investors that create marketable products from old California carpet.
