AB 341 and AB 1826 Compliance

DC Environmental helps Clients comply with State and Local Regulations for Commercial Recycling (AB 341) and Organics Recycling (AB 1826 and SB 1383).

The State of California has three specific laws in place to significantly reduce the amount of waste going into landfills:

1. Assembly Bill 341 (AB 341) sets an ambitious 75% recycling target and requires recycling programs to be implemented at all business, industrial, and multi-family facilities that generate 4 cubic yards or more of waste per week.

2. Assembly Bill 1826 (AB 1826) requires businesses generating 2 cubic yards or more of waste per week to separate organic waste so it can be diverted from landfills.

3. Senate Bill 1383 (SB 1383) requires all residents and businesses to separate organic materials like food from recycling and trash effective January 1, 2022.  This bill is linked to AB1826 with penalties for noncompliance to be determined and enforced by local jurisdictions.

DC Environmental provides customized recycling solutions for buildings, office parks and retail centers to help them comply with AB 341, AB 1826 and SB 1383 laws. Our team can provide reports that document compliance to protect our clients from city fines and/or penalties.
