California Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed into law the United States' first-ever recycled-content mandate for plastic beverage containers. Under the law, all plastic bottles covered by the state's container redemption program must contain an average at least 15% postconsumer resin (PCR), starting in 2022. The recycled-content mandate rises to 25% in 2025 and 50% in 2030.

The legislation, by Assemblymembers Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, and Jacqui Irwin, D-Thousand Oaks, also makes California's standards the strongest in the world. It aims to help develop domestic markets for recycled materials and move toward a circular economy, as well as reduce dependence on virgin plastics, which rely on oil, as part of a transition away from fossil fuels.
