Mandantory Commercial Organic Recycling

In September 2014 the Governor signed into law California Assembly Bill 1826 (AB 1826).  AB 1826 mandates the diversion of organic waste from landfills by requiring commercial businesses to recycle organic waste.

The law sets forth a gradual increase in the number of businesses subject to the requirements. The effective dates and thresholds are outlined below:

  • On and after April 1, 2016 businesses that generate 8 cubic yards or more of organic waste per week are subject to the requirement

  • On and after January 1, 2017 businesses that generate 4 cubic yards or more of organic waste per week are subject to the requirement

  • On and after January 1, 2019 businesses that generate 4 cubic yards or more of solid waste per week, regardless of how much of that waste is organic, are subject to the requirement

In 2020, CalRecycle will conduct a formal review of all jurisdictions and make futher recommendations as necessary.

Businesses are required to take one of the following actions:

  • Source separate organic waste from the other waste and participate in a waste recycling service that includes collection and recycling of organic waste

  • Recycle its organic waste on site, or self-haul its organic waste off site for recycling

  • Subcribe to an organic waste recycling service that may include mixed waste processing that specifically recycles organic waste

  • Make other arrangements consistent with the existing right of a business to sell or donate its recyclable organic waste
