Each business must separate their materials by either placing items into appropriately marked bins or by separating it into black bags for trash, green bags for food waste and blue bags for recyclable materials. 

Please mark the name of your business on your grease containers and place out for pickup only between midnight and 9 a.m. each Wednesday.

Commercial Services Guide

California Recycling Laws: Assembly Bill 341 requires all businesses in California that generate four cubic yards or more of waste per week or a multifamily residential dwelling with five units or more to recycle. Assembly Bill 1826 requires businesses to separate their organics (food scraps and yard trimmings) for recycling. This law consists of a tiered system starting April 1, 2016 with businesses generating 8 cubic yards of organic waste per week and decreasing to 4 cubic yards of organic waste per week January 1, 2017.  Organics is defined as wood, green, and food waste. Participating in a CR&R recycling program will assist your business in meeting these recycling requirements. Additional information is available from the  California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery.
