CARE Announces Updates to California Carpet Stewardship Program

Sacramento, CA, August 31, 2020-The California Carpet Stewardship Program announced three changes, 

* The early subsidy payment options currently set to expire will be continued through the end of 2020.

* The additional $0.02/lb. subsidy for collector sorter entrepreneurs currently set to expire will be continued thru the end of 2020.

* An Sustainability Planning Subcommittee has been formed to look at new ways to enable growing collections as we go after the second 100 million pounds. We know this will be bigger challenge and cost more, but is important as the program continues to expand. We hope to have many new ideas ready for implementation by year-end.  

These additional actions were deemed appropriate under the COVID-19 Action Plan as the program continued to monitor market dynamics.
