COMMERCIAL RECYCLING MANDATE ON JULY 1, 2012

February 10, 2012

California’s new statewide commercial recycling rules will become effective this Summer. Below is a link to make sure you have the information you need to comply. Passed into law in 2011 by AB 341 (Chesbro; D – Eureka) and adopted by CalRecycle in January the new rules apply to businesses (including public entities) that generate four cubic yards or more of waste per week and multifamily units of five or more.

 

The stated purpose of this requirement is to further implement the state’s attempts to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions, under AB 32 as well as expand the opportunity for additional recycling services and recycling manufacturing facilities in California.

 

As of July 1, a business that generates more than four cubic yards of commercial solid waste per week or is a multifamily residential dwelling of five units or more shall arrange for recycling services.
