WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BUSINESS & APARTMENT RECYCLING
Businesses: State law requires all businesses that generate 4 cubic yards of garbage per week to recycle
Apartments: State law requires apartment communities / multi-family housing with 5 or more units to recycle
Recycling may provide opportunities for your business to save money.
Recycling helps conserve resources and extends the life of California’s landfills. It also helps create a healthy environment for our community and future generations.
Many apartment residents are requesting recycling. Providing recycling helps promote your community as environmentally friendly and may help fill vacancies.
