Mandatory RecyclingCalifornia Recycling Laws: Assembly Bill 341 requires all businesses in California that generate four cubic yards or more of waste per week or a multifamily residential dwelling with five units or more to recycle. Assembly Bill 1826 requires businesses to separate their organics (food scraps and yard trimmings) for recycling. This law consists of a tiered system starting April 1, 2016 with businesses generating 8 cubic yards of organic waste per week and decreasing to 4 cubic yards of organic waste per week January 1, 2017.  Organics is defined as wood, green, and food waste. Participating in a CR&R recycling program will assist your business in meeting these recycling requirements.
