Whether you are running a business or managing a multi-family property, recycling can help you go green and reduce your trash disposal costs. The commercial sector generates nearly three fourths of the solid waste in California, so State Assembly Bills 341 and 1826 provide opportunities for businesses and multi-family complexes to divert their recyclable waste away from landfills. AB 341 and 1826 require businesses and multifamily dwellings (of 5 units or more) that generate 4 cubic yards of trash and/or organic waste per week to have a recycling program in place. If you aren’t yet recycling at your business or multi-family complex, the time to start is now!
