Commercial Recycling: It’s the right thing to do, and it’s the law!

Mandatory Commercial Organic Recycling AB 1826, (effective April 22, 2016) requires commercial properties to recycle their organic waste, depending on the amount of organic waste they generate each week. Commercial properties that generate four (4) or more cubic yards of organic waste per week are required to arrange for organic waste recycling services.

California’s Mandatory Commercial Recycling Law, AB 341, (effective July 1, 2012) requires businesses and multifamily dwellings to recycle. Any commercial property that generates four (4) cubic yards or more of solid waste per week or multifamily dwelling with five (5) units or more must arrange for recycling service.

Make Green & Blue Your “Go-To!”

The standard size for all recycling (blue) and compost (green) carts is 96 gallons. This is our largest cart! The reason for this is we want you to think diversion first! Everything you put in your garbage cart (gray) goes into the landfill. Clean and acceptable materials in your recycling and compost cart are diverted from the landfills and recycled into new materials or enriching compost.
