E-mail Print

Introduced on February 17, 2001, AB 818, would create that "Renters' Right to Recycle Act" and would require the owner of a multifamily dwelling, defined as a residential facility that consists of 5 or more living units, to arrange for recycling services that are appropriate and available for the multifamily dwelling.


AB 341 would require businesses to recycle

UPDATE (10-06-2011):  Governor Brown signs AB 341.

UPDATE: Recycling industry efforts help preserve rights of businesses and recyclers.


Introduced on February 10, 2011, AB 341 would make some notable changes to California law.  Currently, businesses are not directly subject to the requirements of the Integrated Waste Management Act of 1989 (AB 939, Sher) to divert waste from landfills. AB 341 would change that by, among other things, requiring businesses to recycle.


After input from the recycling industry, amendments were made to AB 341 that expressly preserve the existing right of a business to sell or donate its recyclable materials.
