Beginning April 1, 2016, Assembly Bill 1826 (AB 1826) requires all businesses in California that generate 8 cubic yards of organic waste per week and multi-family residential dwellings of 5 or more units to arrange for recycling services of organic waste.
This new law phases in the mandatory recycling of commercial organics over time, such that by January 1, 2019, a business that generates 4 or more cubic yards of organic waste per week must arrange for recycling services of organic wastes. Organic waste consists of food waste, landscape waste, nonhazardous wood waste, and food soiled paper waste that is mixed with food waste.
To assist with the implementation of this new requirement, CR&R has prepared an Organic Waste Fact Sheet, which includes an overview of AB 1826 and a self-assessment guide to help identify when a business or multi-family facility may need to establish organic waste services. Please contact CR&R at 1-800-755-8112, or visit their website at www.crrwasteservices.com for further information.
