California Extended Producer Responsibility (ERP)
California State Senator Josh Newman (D-CA-29) has introduced the Responsible Textile Recovery Act of 2023. The Act is a form of Extended Producer Responsibility for Textiles that would require apparel and home textile manufacturers in California to develop and pay for a system to collect and recycle textile products. The legislation aims to reduce the amount of textiles going to landfills and promote a more circular economy. The proposed law would require manufacturers to achieve specific recycling goals based on the amount of textiles they produce. The legislation, as currently written, identifies the linen, uniform and facility services industry as a producer which would require operators to achieve the same reduction goals. This is the first Extended Producer Responsibility law for textiles in the United States.
Emerging Zero-Emissions Vehicle Rules
Bradley Northrup chairs the Pacific Southwest Chapter of NAFA, the Fleet Management Association. Active in NAFA advocacy, he’ll update attendees from a fleet operator’s perspective on emerging California zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) rules. Chief among these: the ARB Advanced Clean Fleet Rule. It aims to achieve a ZEV truck and bus California fleet by 2045 and significantly earlier for last mile delivery such as linen and uniform service. He’ll point out how ZEV enforcement must consider vehicle availability, charging capacity, tax policy, utility capacity and more. Brad is Carlsbad’s public works superintendent; previously, he was fleet team leader and coordinator for San Diego County.
Business casual attire for all sessions.
