[ARCHIVED] Mandatory Commercial Recycling

With the passage of Assembly Bill 341 (AB341), businesses and public entities that generate four (4) cubic yards or more of waste per week and multi– family units of five (5) or more are required to recycle. The purpose of this new State law is to reduce greenhouse emissions by diverting commercial solid waste from landfills and expand opportunities for recycling in California.

Under AB 341, businesses shall take one or any combination of the fol-lowing actions to reuse, recycle, com-post, or otherwise divert commercial solid waste from the landfill:
* Self—haul
* Subscribe to a hauler
* Arrange for pick-up of recyclables
* Subscribe to a recycling program that may include mixed-waste processing that yields diversion results.

The City of Signal Hill and its exclusive franchise refuse (and recycling) hauler, Signal Hill Waste and Recycling Services (EDCO), make it easy, inexpensive, and convenient for businesses and multi-family complexes to meet the requirements under AB341.
