Assembly Bill 341 Mandatory Commercial Recycling

California Assembly Bill 341 requires all commercial accounts that generate four (4) cubic yards or more of solid waste per week  and multi-family complexes with 5 units or more to have a recycling program in place. The legislation became effective July 1, 2012, and was designed to help meet California's diversion goal of 75% by the year 2020.

What are the benefits of this law?

  • The more recyclable materials a business can divert from their trash, the greater the potential savings and/or reduction in costs (i.e., monthly trash bill)
  • Recycling can help reduce emissions of methane, air toxins, and criteria pollutants from landfills
  • Recycling frees up space in landfills that have a limited capacity

Who is required to recycle?

  • Businesses, business complexes, or public entities that generate four (4) cubic yards or more of solid waste per week
  • Owners/managers of a multi-family dwelling of 5 units or more

Why was Assembly Bill 341 signed into law?

  • To reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by diverting commercial solid waste through recycling efforts, and to expand the opportunity for additional recycling services and recycling manufacturing facilities in California
  • To reduce methane emissions at landfills from the decomposition of organic materials
  • To meet the statewide goal of 75% solid waste diversion by 2020
