Mandatory Commercial Recycling Requirements - AB 341
State law requires all businesses that generate 4 or more cubic yards of waste weekly to recycle and all apartment communities/multifamily housing complexes with 5 or more units must also recycle. These regulations became effective July 1, 2012.
Recycling may provide opportunities for your business to save money.
Recycling helps conserve resources and extends the life of California's landfills. It also helps create a healthy environment for our community and future generations. Recycling for all businesses and apartment communities / multifamily housing complexes is mandatory.
Businesses that meet the threshold must arrange for recycling services. A letter went out to the businesses and apartment complexes in Riverbank explaining the requirements along with a questionnaire and recycling information.
For those Businesses or Apartment / Housing Complexes that already have a recycling program in place, let the City know by filling out the letter and questionnaire previously mentioned. Fill out the questionnaire and mail it to:
