AB 341 & Local Government

The Institute for Local Government recently released a new resource to help cities and counties increase recycling by the business in their community. The Institute’s new, sample commercial recycling flyer template is now available. The sample flyers for businesses and apartments are available in English and Spanish and may be modified to fit the needs of individual cities and counties. Besides the sample flyers, cities and counties will also find an accompanying sample cover letter to connect and instructions for modifying the flyers. The flyers will help cities and counties meet the “education and outreach” requirements of the proposed new commercial recycling regulations being developed by CalRecycle.

Additional Institute resources related to commercial recycling include a sample commercial recycling ordinance , case stories about successful commercial recycling programs and education and outreach activities, and archived editions of the Institute’s commercial recycling webinar series.

The Institute also offers a new series of short videos highlighting the experiences of local officials and others related to commercial recycling. The videos provide an opportunity to learn from colleagues and other experts. Topics covered include resources available on the Commercial Recycling Resource Center, adopting a commercial recycling ordinance and taking advantage of webinars to learn about expanding recycling.

All resources are available at www.ca-ilg.org/commercialrecycling.

Resources developed for this project were supported through a partnership with CalRecyle. The Institute for Local Government is the non-profit research and education affiliate of the League of California Cities and the California State Association of Counties. The Institute’s mission is to promote good government at the local level with practical, impartial, and easy to use resources for California communities.
