Effective July 1, 2012, businesses and multi-family complexes (five or more units) that generate four cubic yards or more of waste per week, will be required to recycle under a new State Bill (AB341) directed by CalRecycle.
The goal of AB341 is to increase statewide recycling rates to 75% by year 2020 with aims of reducing greenhouse emissions by diverting commercial solid waste. Currently, State law requires local governments to reduce waste disposed in landfills by 50%. To learn more, visit the CalRecycle website and enter “ab341” in the Search field.
