Mandatory Commercial Recycling

Recycling Mandates for Businesses
Under the State of California Law AB 341, businesses are required to establish a recycling program by July 1, 2012 if any of the following criteria are met:
  1. Business that generates more than 4 cubic yards of trash per week
  2. Multi-family residential property with 5 or more units. Multi-family properties of 4 units or less are currently exempt.
Establishing Recycling Services
You may comply with the requirements under AB 341 by contacting CR&R Incorporated at 562-694-3730 or 866-742-8850 to establish recycling services. Recycling is offered free of charge to all businesses and residents within the City.

Many businesses have reduced their trash bill by diverting such a significant amount to recycling that they have been able to downsize their trash container.
