Please Recycle!
California Assembly Bill (AB) 341, California's New Mandatory Commercial Recycling Law effective July 1, 2012 requires all businesses that generate four (4) or more cubic yards of waste per week to recycle. Businesses include any commercial or public entity, including not-for-profits, retail centers and school facilities.  AB 341 also requires all multifamily dwellings of five (5) or more units to recycle, regardless of the amount waste generated.

The purpose of the law is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by diverting commercial solid waste to recycling efforts.
