Mandatory Commercial Recycling

Recycling is mandatory per California State Law AB 341 as well as Central Contra Costa Solid Waste Authority (CCCSWA) Ordinance 15-1. While state law only requires businesses with four or more yards of trash per week to have a recycling program, CCCSWA ordinance is more stringent, requiring all businesses to subscribe to recycling service, regardless of the amount of trash generated.

Recycling is included in your garbage rate so there is no additional cost. The more you recycle, the more money you can save!
