California AB 2176
On October 29, 2004 Governor Schwarzenegger signed AB 2176 (Montanez) regarding waste reduction at large venues and events. The law requires the largest venue facilities and events (as defined) in each city and county to begin planning for solid waste reduction, and annually report the progress of their recycling and waste reduction programs to their local government. The law also directs the California Integrated Waste Management Board (Now CalRecycle) to provide guidance and assistance to venues and local governments in meeting their obligations.
