Assembly Bill 341(AB-341) is designed to help meet California’s recycling goal of 75% by the year 2020. AB-341 requires all commercial businesses and public entities that generate 4 cubic yards or more of waste per week to have a recycling program in place.
As of July 1, 2012 businesses generating 4 cubic yards a week of waste are required to meet this 75% target. The state may levy fines on companies that are not deemed compliant.
Assembly Bill 1826 (AB-1826) As part of California’s recycling and greenhouse gas (GHG) emission goals, businesses will be required to collect yard trimmings, food scraps and food-soiled paper for composting, effective April 1, 2016. Multifamily buildings with five or more units will be required to collect yard trimmings, effective April 1, 2016. These organic materials account for nearly one-third of the approximately 30 million tons of waste destined for California’s landfills each year. Mandatory commercial organics recycling helps to meet the goals of California’s Global Warming Solutions Act, AB 32.
