Mandatory Organics Recycling

Californians throw away nearly 6 million tons of food scraps or food waste each year. This represents about 18 percent of all the material that goes to landfills.

State legislation (AB 1826) mandates businesses, public entities and multifamily residential dwellings of (5) units or more, generating 4-cubic yards or more of solid waste, to establish and maintain commercial organics recycling service.  Organic waste means food waste, green waste, landscape and pruning waste, nonhazardous wood waste, and food-soiled paper waste that is mixed in with food waste.  Multifamily residential dwellings only need to recycle green waste (not food waste).
