NOTE: State and Local Recycling Requirements
As of July 1, 2012, businesses that generate four or more cubic yards of waste per week, and multi-family properties with five units or more are required to subscribe to recycling services for basic recyclables such as mixed paper, newspaper, cardboard, glass containers, aluminum cans, and plastic bottles.
Earlier this year, Governor Brown signed AB 341 (Chesbro) into law, which included a requirement for larger businesses and multi-family properties (four cubic yards of garbage service per week and above) to obtain recycling service. The mandatory recycling ordinance adopted by Alameda County builds on the State’s requirements by specifying which materials need to be recycled and by requiring that an adequate level of recycling service be obtained. According to the county ordinance, businesses are required to recycle even if they self-haul waste materials to a landfill or transfer station.
Businesses and multi-family properties that generate 4-cubic yards or more of waste per week must obtain adequate service for recyclables they generate (as listed above) by July 1. Call your service provider to arrange for recycling collection.
