STREET SWEEPING SERVICES

AB 341 Mandatory Commercial Recycling 

Beginning July 1, 2012, Assembly Bill 341 (AB341) requires all businesses in California that generate 4 or more cubic yards of waste per week to recycle. Information about this requirement is available at https://www.calrecycle.ca.gov/Recycle/Commercial/

AB 1826 Mandatory Commercial Organics Recycling 

Beginning January 1, 2019, Assembly Bill 1826 (AB 1826) requires all businesses that generate 4 cubic yards or more of commercial solid waster per week shall arrange for organic waste recycling services. Information about this requirement is available at https://www.calrecycle.ca.gov/Recycle/Commercial/Organics/ 

In 2019, both AB 341 and AB 1826 were amended through AB 827. AB 827 is intended to educate and involve consumers in achieving the state’s recycling goals by requiring businesses subject to MCR and/or MORe to make recycling and/or organic recycling bins available to customers.

In an effort to assist you with these new laws, 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.
