Waste Management is a Resource for You
As part of California’s recycling and greenhouse gas (GHG) emission goals, businesses will be required to collect yard trimmings, food scraps and food-soiled paper for composting, effective April 1, 2016.
AB-341, a new state law that went into effect on July 1, 2012 is designed to help meet California’s recycling goal of 75% by the year 2020. AB-341 requires all businesses and public entities that generate 4 cubic yards or more of waste per week to have a recycling program in place. In addition, multi-family apartments with 5 or more units are also required to form a recycling program.
