Effective July 1, 2012, California State law AB 341 requires commercial enterprises which generate four cubic yards or more of solid waste weekly to participate in recycling programs. This requirement also includes multi-family housing complexes of five units or more, regardless of the amount of solid waste generated each week.
Both Burrtec and Waste Management provide commercial recycling services and usually serve as the most convenient and effective option for commercial entites to remain in compliance with State law. Recycling services provided by Burrtec or Waste Management can help commercial entites divert the amount of material that goes into solid waste bins, which may help the commercial entity avoid the costs associated with such large solid waste containers.
