NOTE: State and Local Recycling Requirements
As of July 1, 2015, all businesses and multi-family properties are required to sort their recyclables from their trash.  Businesses must subscribe to recycling services for basic recyclables such as mixed paper, newspaper, cardboard, glass containers, aluminum cans, and plastic bottles.

Requirements to collect food scraps and compostable paper separately from garbage became effective July 1, 2016.  Multi-family properties with 5 or more units and businesses that generate food waste, such as restaurants and grocery stores must also sort organics from their trash.  Organics are food scraps, compostable paper and plant debris; which are compostable.  These materials, when sent to a composting facility, will become compost - a valuable resource used by landscapers and farmers.

In 2012, Governor Brown signed AB 341 (Chesbro) into law, which included a requirement for larger businesses (four cubic yards of garbage service per week and above) to obtain recycling service. The Mandatory Recycling Ordinance 2012-01, 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.

Call your service provider to arrange for recycling collection services.
