The Recycling Market Development Zone (RMDZ or The Zone) Three way partnership is between the Chamber, local government and the California Department of Resources, Recycling and Recovery. The Integrated Waste Management Board has been dissolved. The Zone forms a nexus of local landfill diversion and economic development efforts. Essential to this partnership is the participation of recycling based businesses. Zone representatives search for competent, motivated processors and manufacturers willing to initiate or expand the use of recycled materials. The RMDZ programs is designed to give local recycling based businesses a competitive edge and offers low interest loans to eligible companies.
The RMDZ works to divert significant quantities of recoverable resources from being thrown into San Joaquin County landfills. The Zone stimulates the usage of recycled materials by local manufacturers. Using recycled materials will help to create a local market for recyclables and products made from recycled materials.
