Mandatory Commercial Recycling (AB 341)

California Assembly Bill AB 341 was enacted July 1, 2012, requiring all California cities to divert a minimum of 75% of waste from landfills by 2020. This law also requires both businesses that generate four cubic yards or more of solid waste weekly and multifamily complexes with 5 units or more to participate in recycling programs. Additionally, the City of Oceanside is the first city in San Diego County to adopt a Zero Waste Plan to support and surpass the goals set forth by AB 341. The City of Oceanside cannot reach these goals without each business doing its part. Recycling is the right decision for your business, your community, and the earth. By making recycling a part of your daily routine you will not only save precious and limited natural resources, and enjoy a healthier environment, but you may also reduce your waste disposal costs.
