Recycling Guide - Commercial

Mandatory Recycling for Businesses and Apartments

State recycling regulations require that all businesses generating at least four (4) cubic yards of garbage per week and all multi-family complexes with at least 5 units MUST recycle. This new requirement became effective July 1, 2012.

CalRecycle estimates that 75% percent of landfill waste is generated by the commercial sector, including businesses, schools and apartment complexes. Promoting commercial recycling helps keep recyclable materials out of landfills. This conserves resources, extends the life of landfills and reduces the potential generation of greenhouse gases.

For more information about how these new regulations may apply to you and to learn more about local recycling opportunities call us at (707) 234-6400. To learn more about commercial recycling, click here.

Waste Assessments

We can visit your business to assess your waste stream and determine whether more material can be recycled. We can help you design employee training to maximize recycling. More recycling may result in a reduction in your garbage bill. Call us to schedule an on-site visit.
