Business Waste Reduction and Recycling Program

Commercial Recycling Mandates

Effective July 1, 2012, California Assembly Bill 341 requires any business, non-profit organization, or governmental agency generating four or more cubic yards of solid waste per week to implement a recycling program.

Effective January 1, 2017, California Assembly Bill 1826 requires any business, non-profit organization, or governmental agency generating 4 or more cubic yards of organic materials* per week to collect and recycle those materials. *Organic materials include yard trimmings, food waste, and non-treated wood waste.

How to Comply with the Mandates

  • Wheelabrator Shasta, 20811 Industry Rd., Anderson. Accepts tree tops, limbs, woody yard waste, pallets and crates, logging slash, clean scrap lumber, plywood, and particle board.

Reduce Food Waste - Take a look at our food loss prevention sheets for grocery stores and restaurants for tips on reducing food waste and saving money.

Donate Food - See a list of local food pantries that accept edible food donations. The Good Samaritan Food Donation Act protects your business or organization from liability.

Compost - Create a compost pile out of yard trimmings and food scraps. Take a look at our how-to guide. 

Grasscycle - Leave grass clippings on your lawn when mowing. Clippings decompose quickly, returning valuable nutrients back to the soil.

Mulch - Use leaves and pine needles as mulch. Mulching controls weeds, conserves moisture, and reduces soil erosion.
