What is AB 341

AB 341 is a California state assembly bill (AB) 341. It sets a state-wide 75% waste recycling goal. It is commonly referred to as Mandatory Commerical Recycling. On and after July 1, 2012, businesses generating 4 cubic yards a week of waste, and multi-family complexes of 5 units or more are required to recycle. Jurisdictions are also required to implement a program that includes education, outreach, and monitoring of recycling within their cities. There are about 470,000 businesses and multi-family residences that will have to take specific actions to comply with the proposed regulations. Of this total, about 250,000 are businesses and an additional 220,000 are multi-family dwellings. The affected businesses represent approximately 20 percent of California’s 1.3 million businesses and are responsible for about 75 percent of the commercial waste generated in California.
