Commercial Recycling Regulations

As of July 1, 2012

Businesses and public entities that generate four cubic yards or more of waste per week and multifamily units of five or more are required to recycle. The requirement was contained in legislation signed into law, AB 341 (Chesbro; D-North Coast). The purpose of this law, as stated by the California Department of Resources, Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle), is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by diverting commercial solid waste to recycling efforts and expand opportunities for additional recycling services and recycling manufacturing facilities in California.
