Materials that must be composted include food waste, green waste, landscape and pruning waste, non-hazardous wood waste, and food-soiled paper.
AB 341 has required recycling at many businesses since July 1, 2012. Materials that must be recycled include bottles, cans, paper, and cardboard.
Additionally, the Mandatory Composting and Recycling law in Alameda County requires businesses to sort their waste into the proper containers.
