AB 341 Mandatory Commercial Recycling
Beginning July 1, 2012, Assembly Bill 341 (AB341) requires all businesses in California that generate four or more cubic yards of waste per week to recycle. In an effort to assist you with this new law, our contracted hauler (CR&R Environmental Services) offers a wide variety of recycling services. Please visit their website at www.crrwasteservices.com for further information.
Your business may also donate and/or self-haul materials to a recycling facility. Information about California’s new business recycling requirement is available from the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) at www.calrecycle.ca.gov/climate/recycling.
Please comment on the service you received from the Building & Safety Division by completing our Customer Comment Form. Your input is valuable and appreciated.
