RFA 2024 Annual Meeting: March 27 from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. PST

About Us

On October 6, 2021, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed AB 818 by Assembly Member Richard Bloom into law, requiring all packaging for diaper wipes, cleaning wipes, and cosmetic wipes to clearly display the “Do Not Flush” symbol. This three-year effort between wastewater, product stewardship groups and wipes manufacturers addresses an urgent pollution problem plaguing public wastewater infrastructure. The legislation also requires consumer education about the impacts of flushing wipes improperly

Partner Organizations

The Responsible Flushing Alliance

The Responsible Flushing Alliance (RFA) is dedicated to consumer education around keeping our homes and communities healthy through proper flushing practices. Our aim is to help prevent clogs that lead to costly damage to our plumbing and sewer systems. RFA supports clear and prominent labeling of all items that should not be flushed so consumers have the consistent disposal information. Our goal is to change consumer behavior to help reduce damage to our nation’s sewage systems caused by objects and materials not designed to be flushed.

California Association of Sanitation Agencies

For over 60 years, CASA has served as the leading voice for clean water agencies on regulatory, legislative and legal issues. We are the leading California association dedicated to advancing wastewater interests, including the recycling of wastewater into usable water, generation of renewable energy, biosolids and other valuable resources. Through our efforts, we help create a clean and sustainable environment for California. CASA represents more than 125 local public agencies engaged in the collection, treatment and recycling of wastewater and biosolids to protect public health and the environment. Our mission is to provide trusted information and advocacy on behalf of California clean water agencies, and to be a leader in sustainability and utilization of renewable resources.

National Stewardship Action Council

The National Stewardship Action Council (NSAC) is a network of committed proponents comprised of governments, non-government organizations, businesses, and consumers who advocate that producers fairly share responsibility in a circular economy. NSAC supports Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) to conserve resources, reduce costs to local governments, create jobs in remanufacturing, and provide a circular economy. NSAC’s goal is to align public and private sectors through information and partnerships to implement and ensure sustainable recovery systems where producers have an appropriate level of sharing in the responsibility for those systems.

National Association of Clean Water Agencies

For over 50 years, the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) has been the nation’s recognized leader in legislative, regulatory, legal and communications advocacy on the full spectrum of clean water issues. NACWA represents public wastewater and stormwater agencies of all sizes nationwide. Our unique and growing network strengthens the advocacy voice for the public clean water sector and helps advance policies to provide affordable and sustainable clean water for all. Our vision is to advance sustainable and responsible policy initiatives that help to shape a strong and sustainable clean water future.
