California has set ambitious goals to reduce statewide solid waste disposal and divert resources from landfill. These laws require businesses (including public entities) and multifamily dwellings (apartments) to recycle and compost to achieve this goal.
Mill Valley Refuse Service has the programs you need to comply with the law. In most cases you’re already paying for these services and you may even be doing everything you need to do now to be in compliance.
In an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, keep valuable material out of landfills, and create a healthy environment for our community and future generations by recovering natural resources, California has enacted two mandatory recycling laws that impact businesses.
If you have any questions, please call our office Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at (415) 457-9760.
AB 341 requires that a business (includes public entities) that generates four (4) cubic yards or more of commercial solid waste per week shall arrange for recycling services.
