Council Approved Mandatory Recycling In Accordance with AB341 & 1826

In 2011 Assembly Bill 341 was enacted to ensure mandatory commercial recycling. Designed to further increase recycling efforts by adding requirements of a state-wide mandatory commercial recycling program, the purpose of the Act was to reduce GHG emissions by diverting commercial solid waste to recycling efforts and expanding the opportunity for additional recycling services, as well as recycling manufacturing facilities in California.  

Assembly Bill 1826 was signed in to law by Governor Brown in October of 2014. Among the provisions created was that all businesses are required to recycle their organic waste on and after April 1, 2016, depending on the amount of waste they generate per week. This law also requires local jurisdictions to implement an organic waste recycling program to divert organic waste generated by businesses, including multifamily residential dwellings that consist of five or more units.   

The programs and requirements established in the attached Resolution, set forth the basic parameters for which the City will use to ensure State mandated compliance.  

Among the provisions enacted by Resolution 17-62 are:

  • That all public and private entities covered under the legislative confines of AB341 are required to implement a mandatory recycling program within 45-Days of the passage of this Resolution. 
  • That all public and private entities covered under the legislative confines of AB1826 are required to recycle their organic waste in a manner commensurate with the enacted legislation.  
  • That all brokers and consolidators of waste and/or recyclable material shall be required to register and report solid waste and recycling tonnage to the City in similar fashion as the nonexclusive franchised haulers.  This category also includes third party consolidators; brokers; and anyone that arranges for the collection, transportation, and/or disposal of waste and/or recyclable material from any business entity located within the jurisdictional confines of the City of Montebello.
