6 6 6 Jobs & Economy Goals: Supply in-demand skills for employers Create relevant pathways and stackable credentials Get Californians into open jobs Promote student success Our Overarching Goals California Community Colleges – Chancellors Office | 112 Colleges | 72 Districts | 2.6 Million Students

7 7 Doing What MATTERS for Jobs & the Economy Framework for Californias community colleges GIVE PRIORITY 1A. Consider labor market needs when making local decisions: budget, courses, programs. 1B. Decide on program capacity as a region. MAKE ROOM 2. Retool programs that are not working or not meeting a labor market need so that students can study what matters. STUDENT SUCCESS 3A. Braid funding and advance common metrics in CCCCO RFAs. 3B. Strengthen regions with four skillsets: data mining, convening, technology, and curriculum approval. INNOVATE 4. Solve a complex workforce training need so that our system can better deliver for employers and sectors.

12 Whats In a Name? Recycling & Material Management…a career path by many names. Solid Waste Management Resource Management or Recycling & RM Sustainable Material Management Sustainable Resource Management 12

13 A Historical Perspective … Pre 1950s System of built-in Resource Management Post war consumption, product growth Commingled garbage collection, and creation of sanitary landfill and packer truck. Compacted materials no longer resources, but garbage First Earth Day 1970 Creation of EPA and federal laws to protect air, water and land. Growing awareness of environmental issues California launches 20 years of aggressive policy to reduce landfill dependence SB5 SB2020 AB939 SB – 2012 Post AB939 Era. Shift in CA from recycling to Zero Waste. AB32 AB341 State adopted goal of 75% through reuse, recycling and composting 13

14 Recycling pre-1950s There was less packaging & fewer material types; trash was hand-sorted by collectors [paper, glass bottles, metal, pig food, & a small pile of trash] 14

15 Recycling post-1950s 15 New Types of Packaging (especially plastics & toxics) More Prepared Foods-Less Fresh Food More Distant Landfills Packer Trucks make Garbage

16 Federal Legislation: 1970s 16 The EPA was created on December 2, 1970 in response to growing public concern and a grass roots movement to "do something" about the deteriorating conditions of water, air, and land. Resource Conservation & Recovery Act Protect us from the hazards of waste disposal; Conserve energy and natural resources by recycling and recovery; Reduce or eliminate waste; and Clean up waste, which may have spilled, leaked, or been improperly disposed.

17 California Legislation 17 California Legislation [http://www.calrecycle.ca.gov/Laws/Legislation/CalHist] SB 5 – Solid Waste Management and Resource Recovery Act (1972) SB 2020 – The Bottle Bill (1986) AB 939 – Integrated Waste Management Act (1989) SB 20 – Electronic Waste Recycling Act (2003) AB 32 – Global Warming Solutions Act (2006) AB 341 – Mandatory Commercial Recycling (2011) * and as subsequently amended

18 Greenhouse Gases We are only now beginning to evaluate the role of recycling, composting, and landfill operations in reducing GHGs. Methane is x more potent than CO2 & landfills are one of the largest man-made sources of methane 18

19 ….Wasted Resources – Land – Water – Energy Time Money Jobs

20 LANDFILL = WASTE 1 Job created each 10,000 ton disposed

21 Composting = 4 Jobs/10,000 tons

22 Organics: Food & Yard Trimmings Organics = 32% of CA waste stream (CalRecycle) 22

23 Recycling = 10 Jobs/10,000 tons

24 Reuse & Repair = Jobs/10,000 tons

25 ZERO WASTE = JOBS

26 AB Mandatory Commercial Recycling: Requires CalRecycle to implement a mandatory commercial recycling program beginning in 2012; and will cover businesses that generate 4 cubic yards or more, and apartments with 5 or more units. 21 Millions Tons of Additional Landfill Reduction = 60,000 New Jobs

27 Scraps become Products Precision Manufacturing Product Redesign Green Chemistry Design for Long- life and Compatibility Where are the Opportunities? Design for Zero Waste Build/ Manufacture for Zero Waste Recycling of Materials CRV Collection for EPR Products & Services, Purchase and Resale for Zero Waste Connects Business to Public Determines Packaging Package, Ship, Market for Zero Waste

29 Research Objectives In 2013, COE conducted a study on the Recycling & Materials Management workforce in California. The purpose of the study was to collect and analyze data on: Identify various industries that use recycled materials or perform activities related to recycling Estimate the number of firms, size of firms, and total employment across California Project future job growth for occupations related to R&MM Identify hiring challenges that employers are encountering and the skills most in demand Analyze how community colleges are preparing students through programs related to R&MM Recommendations for action

30 Partnerships California Resource Recovery Association: provided valuable information that shaped the research study helped to distribute the survey to CRRA member organizations. Santa Monica College: lead college on a U.S. Department of Labor Community-Based Job Training Grant provided information about grant funded training activities at SMC and grants overall job placement outcomes. Irvine Valley and Golden West Colleges: provided information about the grants training activities at their colleges.

31 Study Scope California 2,600 employers (estimate) 234 completed the survey (9%) June –August 2013 Generous participation by the 234 Recycling & Materials Management employer representatives across California who took the time to complete our survey, providing the COEs with valuable data which is the centerpiece of the study.

44 Recommendations Develop R&MM Certificate and Degree Programs The programs developed should address the needs of both students seeking career preparation to enter the workforce upon graduation and incumbent workers seeking to upgrade their skills to help them advance their careers or make them more competitive in the labor market. Incorporate R&MM into Existing Environmental Technology Programs Colleges should seek faculty members who have expertise in the R&MM field to complement existing Environmental Technology faculty. Develop Industry Partnerships Developing partnerships with local R&MM businesses and the California Resource Recovery Association (CRRA) is an important strategy that can help colleges organize internships, create applied classroom projects, and bring industry experts into classrooms as guest lecturers. Partnerships with industry employers also may be helpful in finding qualified industry experts to teach as adjunct faculty.

45 Importance of Training Programs 2005 – CRRA, the State Recycling Organization did a survey and ask 500+ members, whats the most important industry need for members Training – Existing employees – professional development / programs & best practices – Transitional employees – transferred from other departments – New employees - new to field & industry 45

46 DOL CBJT Grant 2010 – CRRA, Santa Monica College, Irvine Valley College, Goldenwest College and 3 One Stop Centers, collaborate on CBJT Grant focused on RMM Training (LA & OC area only) Industry Advisory Committee Partnership / SLOs High growth job field – Drivers / training to identify HHWs, proper sorting of materials – Customer Services / training to answer customer questions on programs – Recycling Coordinators / to implement, oversee and report about programs 46
