Mandatory Commercial Recycling
In 2012 State Assembly Bill 341 made business recycling mandatory for any business that generates four cubic yards or more of commercial solid waste per week (i.e., one extra large dumpster). This includes non-profit organizations, government agencies, industrial facilities, schools, hospitals and malls. We have resources to help businesses get started with recycling.
