MANDATORY RECYCLING FOR BUSINESS & MULTI-FAMILY COMPLEXES

AB 341

In October of 2011, Assembly Bill (AB) 341 set a 75% recycling goal for California by the year 2020. This law mandates that all Commercial businesses and public entities that generate four cubic yards or more of solid waste per week, and multi-family complexes with five units or more, are subject to mandatory recycling and required to do one of the following:

  1. Separate recyclable materials from the solid waste that are discarded, and either self haul or arrange for separate collection of the recyclables; or

  2. Subscribe to service that includes mixed waste processing that provides diversion results comparable to source separation.

AB 1826

In October of 2014, Governor Brown signed into law Assembly Bill (AB) 1826 requiring all businesses, including multi-family complexes, to recycle their organic* waste that are landfill bound. The full scope takes 5 years to implement by first targeting the largest waste generators. The implementation schedule for businesses and must-family complexes to have an organics recycling program in place is as follows:

  • April 1, 2016: Businesses and multi-family complexes generating 8 cubic-yards per week of organic waste

  • January1, 2017: Businesses and multi-family complexes generating 4 cubic-yards per week of organic waste

  • January 1, 2019: Businesses and multi-family complexes generating 4 cubic-yards per week of solid waste

* Organic waste includes food waste, green waste, landscape and pruning waste, nonhazardous wood waste, and food soiled paper waste that is mixed with food waste.
