CalRecycle Report Shows Dip In Statewide Recycling Rate In 2016

Aug 23, 2017

Californians sent roughly 35 million tons of material to the landfill in 2016. That figure corresponds to the lowest recycling rate since the state set a 75 percent recycling goal in 2011.

ALSO: Caltrans is worried about the possibility of dead trees falling onto some California highways. The agency has already removed 107,000 trees. Now the agency is getting ready to remove another 54,000 trees, including some on private land.
