California’s Mandatory Organic Recycling Bill: AB1826 – Beginning April 1, 2016
The state will require businesses that generate 8 cubic yards or more of organic waste per week to establish organic waste recycling services. Organic waste is defined as green waste, food waste, pruning and landscape waste, food-soiled paper waste mixed in with food waste and nonhazardous wood waste.
WVC&R will be mailing out an Organic Waste Assessment Form that will allow us to help you comply with AB1826.
Effective July 1, 2012, AB 341, the State of California’s Mandatory Commercial Recycling Program, requires commercial businesses that generate four cubic yards or more of solid waste per week and multi-family complexes with 5 units or more to recycle. Many WVC&R businesses and complexes are already in compliance with AB 341.
If your business or complex fits into these parameters and you currently do not have recycling, WVC&R will provide recycling containers and service at no additional charge.
To request recycling or compost service, or if you want more information on the new legislations and how they pertain to you, please contact Tim Elias at 408-283-9250 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
