AB 341: California's Commercial recycling Law



What you Need to Know
In July 2012, California’s Mandatory Commercial Recycling Law AB 341 goes into effect. The law will affect all businesses that generate more than 4 cubic yards of refuse and recyclables per week. Which means if your business is producing more than 4 yards per week of landfilled material and you are not participating in a recycling program, you must start participating by June 2012. Multifamily units with 5 or more units are also required to participate in a recycling program.

The good news is that 99% of all businesses / multifamily units in Paradise already have the required recycling in place so everyone, with the exception of a handful of businesses, is already in compliance with the law and will not be negatively effected by it in anyway.

However, there is always room for improvement and NRWS is here to help your business increase recycling efforts and reduce operational costs. To help your business to exceed new standards NRWS provides a full time Recycling and Public Outreach Coordinator that is available free to all businesses to perform waste characterization studies, provide data, and calculate possible rate savings, as well as, train staff on recycling do’s and don’t’s. Services are set up to reflect cost savings associated with recycling, the more your recycling the more you save.

And for those that do not have recycling the good news is that adding recycling to your disposal routine is Free and easy to do.If you want to learn more or would like to schedule a waste study or meet with our Recycling and Public Outreach
Coordinator contact Team Member Jennifer Arbuckle at (530) 876-3345
