AB341 - Mandatory Commercial and Multi-Family Recycling Requirements - Effective July 1, 2012
On July 1, 2012, Governor Brown signed legislation AB 341 which increases the State of California's waste diversion goal from 50% to 75% by 2020. This state legislation also includes mandatory commercial and multi-family recycling to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
All commercial accounts that generate more than (4) four yards per week of solid waste and multi-family complexes with (5) five units or more are required by the State of California to establish and maintain recycling service. The City of Corona encourages you to take advantage of commercial recycling offered by Waste Management. Recycling is an easy way to cut down on your solid waste disposal costs and by keeping items out of your trash, you may be able to cut down on the number of waste bins or limit the frequency of your trash pickups.
