Requirements for Multifamily Units Property Owners
Assembly Bill 1826 (AB 1826) requires multifamily properties and homeowner associations exceeding five units to develop a program to recycle green waste, rather than sending it to a landfill. Green/landscaping waste includes leaves, grass clippings, landscape wood waste, and weeds. Additionally, AB 1826 prohibits the disposal of landscaping waste in a multifamily's trash or recycling dumpsters. In order to comply with the law, a multifamily property can utilize any combination of these three options:
- Require landscape contractors to recycle green waste by hauling it to a composting/recycling facility.
- On-site processing through chipping or composting, and re-use on site.
- Self-haul green waste to a recycling, composting or agricultural facility.
Assembly Bill 341 (AB 341)requires all businesses (commercial and multifamily) in California that generate 4 or more cubic yards of waste per week to recycle. Participating in a recycling program will assist your business in meeting the new recycling requirement. Businesses may also donate, sell and/ or self-haul materials to a recycling facility. Information about California’s multifamily recycling requirements is available from the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery's website.
