The State of California recently passed a new mandatory commercial recycling program known as AB 341 (Assembly Bill 341). If your business subscribes to any of MarBorg’s recycling services, you are already in compliance with this new program. If your business does not currently recycle, now is a great time to start. Call MarBorg today to see how you can divert material from the landfill, and reduce your monthly trash bill at the same time. For details on this new program, see below. 

Key Elements of the Law 

Chapter 476, Statutes of 2011 (Chesbro, AB 341) sets forth the requirements of the statewide mandatory commercial recycling program. Below are basic descriptions: 

Purpose of the Law 

To reduce GHG emissions by diverting commercial solid waste to recycling efforts and to expand the opportunity for additional recycling services and recycling manufacturing facilities in California. 

Key Roles of the Law 

  • Business Commercial Recycling Requirements--A business (includes public entities) that generates four cubic yards or more of commercial solid waste per week or is a multifamily residential dwelling of five units or more shall arrange for recycling services. Businesses can take one or any combination of the following in order to reuse, recycle, compost or otherwise divert solid waste from disposal: 
    • Self-haul. 
    • Subscribe to a hauler(s). 
    • Arrange for the pickup of recyclable materials. 
    • Subscribe to a recycling service that may include mixed waste processing that yields diversion results comparable to source separation.

A property owner of a commercial business or multifamily residential dwelling may require tenants to source separate their recyclable materials to aid in compliance with this section.
