Right to Recycle

Does your apartment, school, or business have recycling services? They should.

AB 341 (by Assembly Member Wesley Chesbro), signed into law in 2013, is a landmark piece of legislation that has moved California forward from landfilling to waste reduction, recycling, and composting, by creating a commercial recycling program. The bill expanded recycling to the underserved apartment and business sectors by requiring all businesses that generate above 4 cubic yards of solid waste, or apartments with 5 or more units, to have recycling service.

Despite our efforts, and over five years of AB 341 as California law, businesses and apartment complexes up-and-down the state are refusing to get on board. Unfortunately, state officials can’t keep track of every business and apartment complex. We need your help busting the offenders.
