Californians Against Waste spends time thinking about garbage so we don't have to. Specifically, the nonprofit advocacy organization is concerned with reducing waste and advocating for effective waste reduction policies and programs.

Focusing on pollution prevention and conservation problems that threaten the health of the public and the environment, Californians Against Waste has been going strong since 1977. 

Understanding that the best way to reduce waste is not to generate it in the first place, the agency starts at the source, working to motivate businesses and manufacturers to decrease waste, increase recycled materials usage and include recyclability in their design.

Ensuring producers are responsible for the environmental impacts of their products and processes, Californians Against Waste works to promote responsible waste management all along the production cycle, and works with policymakers to develop programs and policies that help the public learn about and engage in recycling and responsible waste management.
