California Recycling Laws: Assembly Bill 1826 requires businesses to separate their organics (food scraps and yard trimmings) for recycling.  This law consists of a tiered system starting April 1, 2016 with businesses generating 8 cubic yards of organic waste per week and decreasing to 4 cubic yards of organic waste per week January 1, 2017. Organics is defined as wood, green, and food waste.  Participating in a CR&R recycling program will assist your business in meeting these recycling requirements.  Additional information is available from the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery.


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


Multi-Family Residential Dwellings

In addition to Assembly Bill 341 requiring all businesses in California that generate four cubic yards or more of waste per week, a multifamily residential dwelling with five units or more is required to recycle.
