Become a Recycling Hero!
Every quarter, the City's top recyclers are nominated by their drivers to enter the Waste Management Recycling Hero contest. One nominee is selected at random by the City Council to win a year's worth of free residential trash and recycling services.
How to enter: Be a recycling hero! Recycle as much as you can to divert your refuse from our landfills. This saves energy and natural resources and reduces our dependence on landfills. Your driver will do the rest!
Rolling Hills Estates residents can dispose of batteries in a simple, convenient and environmentally responsible way. Bring your spent batteries to one of the city facilities featuring our BatteryTracker bins and drop them off. Waste Management will do the rest and ensure that they are recycled.

Recycling for Businesses and Multi-Family Complexes
As of July 1, 2012, state law has made recycling mandatory for certain businesses and multi-family complexes. All businesses that produce four cubic yards or more of trash per week and multi-family properties of five units or more (such as apartment buildings) are required to recycle using one of the following methods: subscribe to a service that collects recyclables separately, send materials to a mixed waste processing facility that diverts recyclables, or self-haul recyclables. Implementation of the new law Assembly Bill (AB341), is overseen by the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle). The goal of AB341 is to increase statewide recycling rates to 75 percent by the year 2020 in order to reduce waste and greenhouse gas emissions. Commercial recycling, which has not been as common as single-family residential recycling, will be a key component in achieving this goal.
