MANDATORY COMMERCIAL RECYCLING

AB 341 requires all cities to implement programs to address commercial recycling and recycling in multi-family unit complexes that generate more that 4 cubic yards of refuse per week. To address this issue of commercial recycling, in 2006 the City Council adopted Resolution No. 06-1437 to established revised processes for mandatory collection of commercial recyclables. Within this resolution, “all persons owning or having control of day to day activities of a commercial premises within the City shall comply with the resolution". Your current commercial collector, identified above can work with you to help you satisfy this requirement. Contact them to see if you can improve on your current recycling efforts or start new programs. Your efforts will continue to assist the City with compliance of all state mandates associated with solid waste collection and diversion. For questions, please contact Solid Waste Solutions Inc., at (805) 495-7521 or City staff (818) 597-7314. Thank you for your cooperation.

In order to determine if you must comply with AB 341, please call Tom Jacobellis with Waste Management at (805) 955-4346 to find out the volume of refuse your business generates every week.
