AB 1826 - California’s New Commercial and Multi-Family Organics (Green Waste) Recycling Mandate
In October of 2014 California adopted Assembly Bill 1826, requiring all businesses to recycle their organic waste beginning April 1, 2016. The phase-in of this mandate helps California to achieve its overall waste diversion (75% by 2020) and greenhouse gas emission reduction goals.
Requirements for Multifamily Properties: Multifamily properties of 5 units or more are required to arrange for organic waste recycling services.
Multifamily Organic Waste Includes:
• Green Waste, including but not limited to: grass clippings, brush, weeds, hedge trimmings, leaves, palm fronds, ice plant, ivy and nonhazardous wood, like branches, untreated wood and clean wood waste.
April 1, 2016 Businesses generating 8 cubic yards per week of organics and multi family properties of 5 units or more shall arrange for organics recycling service.
January 1, 2017 Businesses generating 4 cubic yards per week of organics shall arrange for organics recycling service.
