Commercial Recycling

AB 341 - Mandatory Commercial Recycling

To conserve diminishing landfill space and natural resources, California adopted Assembly Bill 341, which sets a Statewide recycling goal of 75% and mandates recycling in the commercial sector. Effective July 1, 2012 businesses that produce at least 4 cubic-yards of trash per week and multi-family dwellings with 5 units or more must participate in recycling through subscribing to recycling service or self-hauling recyclables to an approved facility. 

On average, about 60% of all the garbage we throw away is recyclable. Recycling is an easy way to go green. If your business or building doesn’t have a recycling program, you’re missing out on an easy opportunity to conserve natural resources, save valuable landfill space and possibly reduce your trash bill. 

Waste Management is pleased to provide commercial recycling services that can help your business comply with the State Assembly Bill 341. For more information, contact Waste Management Customer Service.

AB 1826 - Mandatory Commercial Organics Waste Recycling

To reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and increase landfill diversion, California adopted Assembly Bill 1826, which requires businesses and multi-family housing complexes to recycle their organic waste. As of April 1, 2016 businesses that produce at least 8 cubic-yards of organic waste per week and multi-family dwellings with 5 units or more must participate in organic waste recycling through subscribing to recycling service or self-hauling recyclables to an approved facility. 

Waste Management is pleased to offer commercial organic waste recycling services that can help your business comply with the new State Assembly Bill 1826. For more information, contact Waste Management Customer Service.

Construction & Demolition (C&D)

To meet stringent State of Calfornia diversion requirements, new building projects are required to recycle 50% of all Construction & Demolition (C&D) debris and inert materials. You will need to be able to provide proof of the recycling to building officials.
