|Mandatory Commercial Recycling Law – Assembly Bill 341|
|As of July 1, 2012 California State law requires the following business to arrange for recycling services:|
|o Any business that generates 4 cubic yards or more of waste per week; oro Any multi-family establishment of 5 or more units|
Businesses and Multi-Family communities that meet the threshold must recycle at the place of work or jobsite. The following are recycling options to comply with the mandate:
- Subscribe to garbage service with C&S Waste Solutions of Lassen County. Recycling service provided by C&S Waste Solutions offers single‐stream recycling. Simply place all of your recyclables (cans, bottles, plastic, paper, flattened cardboard, etc.) in the recycling cart/ dumpster. Easy!
- Self‐haul recyclable material to the Bass Hill Landfill just outside of Susanville for free, as long as all items are recyclable and segregated from trash.
- Self‐haul recyclables to a local recycling center (e.g. USA Recycling, BullsEye Recycling).
Please note, by recycling, you may be able to reduce the size of your garbage bin/cart/dumpster and that will also reduce the bill that goes with the larger container!
Please call the Solid Waste Authority (530.252.1273) or C&S Waste Solutions (530.252.1200) for any questions you may have about the Mandatory Commercial Recycling Law.
Note: California State law requires apartment owners to offer recycling services at resident(s) request. Apartment owners may require tenants to recycle.
