The state of California has passed two laws that make it mandatory for businesses, institutions and multi-family complexes to separate recyclables and organics/ compostables from their trash. This includes yard waste, food waste and food-soiled paper.
AB 341 – Mandatory Commercial Recycling
AB 341 requires multi-family complexes and businesses that generate 4 cubic yards or more of trash per week to arrange for recycling services.
AB 1826 – Mandatory Organics Recycling
Starting April 2016, AB 1826 requires businesses that generate 8 cubic yards of organic waste to arrange for organic waste recycling services. As of January 2017, this requirement extended to businesses that generate 4 cubic yards of organic waste which includes food scraps, yard trimmings and food soiled paper. Multi-family complexes are only required to recycle yard waste.
