  • 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. To learn more, visit  or
