Effective July 1, 2012, the State of California passed Assembly Bill 341 (AB 341) which requires mandatory recycling for multi-family residential dwellings of five (5) units or more and businesses that generate more than 4-cubic yards of commercial solid waste per week.
Additionally, some businesses and apartment and condominium complexes are required to recycle organics, such as yard and food waste, as a result of Assembly Bill 1826 (AB 1826). The organics recycling requirements are being phased in over the next several years. The largest generators were required to put programs in place as of April 1, 2016, and more businesses and multi-family properties will be required to have programs as of January 1, 2017. Visit
CalRecycle Commercial Organics to learn more about this law.
