Mandatory Commercial Recycling Law

- State mandatory recycling for businesses and multi-family properties began July 1,2012.
- AB 341 requires all businesses that generate 4 or more cubic yards of waste weekly and apartment communities/multi-family housing with 5 or more units to recycle.
- Recycling helps conserve resources and extents the life of California's landfills. It also helps create a healthy environment for our community and future generations.
