CalVet's encourages vendors that provide products containing recycled content to participate in CalRecyle's Market Development Zone (RMDZ) program. For information on the RMDZ program, vendors can click on the following link: CalRecycle RMDZ program
CalRecycle also provides State Agencies a search engine to locate certified California small business and certified California Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises as well as businesses that offer products compliant with the State Agency Buy Recycled Program Campaign (SABRC). The search engine can be found here: CalRecycle Business Search
Additionally, CalVet recommends all businesses contact the California Department of General Services (DGS) to be given a vendor/bidder ID in Cal e-Procure. This ID along with a list of goods and services that are entered into DGS e-procure system as categories are used by the state departments to search for vendor/bidders with the good and/or services they need. You can reach DGS by visiting the
DGS' How to do business with the State of California web page.
