California Commercial Organics and Recycling Laws
Mandatory Organics Recycling - AB1826
The new California Mandatory Commercial Organics Recycling, known as Assembly Bill (AB) 1826, requires that businesses and multi-family complexes of five or more units must begin recycling their organic waste starting in 2016 through a phased approach. Organic waste includes food waste*, green waste, landscape and pruning waste, non-hazardous wood waste and food-soiled paper*.
The State-mandated schedule for implementation is listed below:
|April 1, 2016
||Generators of 8 or more cubic yards of organic waste per week
|January 1, 2017
||Generators of 4 or more cubic yards of organic waste per week
|January 1, 2019
||Generators of 4 or more cubic yards of solid waste per week
*Multi-Family complexes are not required to include food waste and food-soiled paper.
To comply, businesses and multi-family complexes must first separate their organic waste from other waste, and then subscribe to a collection program like ours, recycle organic waste on-site or self-haul organic waste for recycling.

As of July 1, 2012, California’s Assembly Bill 341 requires all businesses that generate four (4) or more cubic yards of garbage per week and multi-family dwellings with five (5) or more units to recycle.
To comply, businesses and multi-family complexes must first separate their recyclables from other waste, and then participate in a collection program like ours or self-haul their recyclables.
