NEW REGULATION EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2012
There is now a mandatory commercial recycling regulation (AB 341) which requires businesses and public entities that generate four or more cubic yards of commercial solid waste per week or multifamily residential dwellings of five units or more to arrange for recycling services by July 1, 2012.
As a commercial waste generator you must take at least one, or
any combination of the following actions:
1. Separate recyclable materials from solid waste and subscribe to a basic level of recycling service that includes collection, self-hauling, or other arrangements for the pickup of the recyclable materials.
2. Subscribe to a recycling service that may include mixed waste processing that yields diversion results comparable to source separation.
If you have recycling questions, answers are available from Eel River Disposal at 725-5156.
