AB 2206 (Montañez, 2005-06) Multifamily Recycling - Support
Summary. This measure is aimed at bringing the opportunity of recycling to residents of apartments and other multifamily dwellings.
AB 2206 was vetoed by Governor Schwarzenegger on September 29, 2006.
Description. The California Integrated Waste Management Act of 1989 established an integrated waste management program requiring local agencies to divert 50% of solid waste by 2000. This bill (similar to last year's AB 399, which was vetoed by the Governor) would expand on this act to require owners and managers of multifamily dwellings to offer assistance and information to residents to achieve higher levels of recycling in multifamily dwellings, which account for 8% of the disposed waste stream. AB 2006 would also require local agencies, in their annual report to the CIWMB, to provide a summary of progress made in the diversion and recycling of waste material at multifamily dwellings.
