Kyle Pogue, Environmental Program Manager, CalRecycle

Kyle manages the CalRecycle team that helped establish the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Funds program to support food waste prevention and rescue efforts and organics processing infrastructure expansion.  Of current focus is the development of regulations supporting recent legislation establishing targets to achieve a 50% reduction in the level of statewide disposal of organic waste by 2020 and a 75% reduction by 2025. This law establishes an additional target that 20 percent of currently disposed edible food is recovered for human consumption by 2025.  CalRecycle also participates in the Pacific Coast Collaborative with a goal to halve per capita wasted food by 2030.
