Organic Waste Recycling

At the end of 2019, the State passed AB 827 that modified its requirements for those businesses that must comply with mandatory organics management and recycling requirements under AB 341 and AB 1826 (as described above). As of July 1, 2020, those affected businesses that provide customers access to the business must provide customers with a commercial solid waste recycling bin or container to collect material purchased on the premises and an organic waste recycling bin or container to collect material purchased on the premises for immediate consumption, as appropriate.

The containers must all be appropriately labeled and adjacent to each other.

This requirement would not apply to full-service restaurants that have a recycling and organics management system established for employees to use with appropriately labeled receptacles. It would also not apply to take-out services.

The State recently issued guidance and templates for signage that should accompany trash, organics, and recycling containers. This guidance can be found on the CalRecycle Website.

For more information, businesses can review the Frequently Asked Questions on AB 827, which can also be found on the CalRecycle website. They start at Question 26.
