[ARCHIVED] Mandatory Commercial Organic Waste Recycling (AB 1826)


The City of Rancho Palos Verdes is announcing the continued formal education and outreach efforts to prepare area businesses for California’s recycling law. Starting January 1, 2017, businesses--including commercial or public entities like schools, hospitals, stores, restaurants, industrial businesses, for-profit or non-profit organizations, residential dwellings with 5 or more units*, and others--must recycle their organic waste over time based on the amount and type of waste the business produces on a weekly basis, with full implementation realized in 2019.  Please click the link below for more information.

*Note: Multifamily dwellings are required to have a green/yard waste diversion program only. Food waste diversion is not required at this time.
