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 2 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.
