Mandatory Commercial Recycling Bill (AB341)
California passed Assembly Bill 341, requiring mandatory commercial recycling, starting July 1, 2012. Commercial businesses and Multi-family complexes that are affected must be either source separate trash from recyclables on-site or co-mingle trash and recyclables in one container. EL Monte’s service provider does co-mingle trash and recyclables. However, if you generate a lot of recycling material, a separate recycling bin may provide opportunities for your business to save money. For more information, please follow the below link or contact Valley Vista Services at (800) 442-6454 or visit this link for AB341.
