Senate Bill 1335 would require all food service packaging provided at California state parks, beaches, and facilities to be reusable, recyclable, or compostable by 2021. The bill would ensure that food service vendors have easy access to information about acceptable materials by requiring CalRecycle to publish a public list of all acceptable material types on its website. Take-out food packaging in California generates tons of non-recyclable and non-compostable waste every day, much of which finds its way into our natural environment. The California Coastal Commission reported as part of the California Coastal Cleanup Day from 1989 – 2014 found that food wrappers/containers accounted for the second highest percentage of trash picked up. Over 1.9 million pieces were collected during that time frame. It is important to keep our parks and beaches clean and ensuring visitors continue to enjoy them.
