AB 1826 Compost Collection

Covered Businesses Must Have Compost Collection Service as of April 1, 2016. As part of California’s recycling and greenhouse gas (GHG) emission goals, businesses will be required by State law (AB 1826) to collect yard trimmings, food scraps and food-soiled paper for composting, effective April 1, 2016. These compostable materials account for nearly one-third of the approximately 30 million tons of waste destined for California’s landfills each year.
