Effective July 1, 2012, California State law AB 341 requires commercial enterprises which generate four cubic yards or more of solid waste weekly to participate in recycling programs. This requirement also includes multi-family housing complexes of five units or more, regardless of the amount of solid waste generated each week. The City of Murrieta adopted these requirements into the City's Municipal Code.
Waste Management, the City's franchised waste and recycling hauler, offers commercial recycling services throughout Murrieta. Recycling can help your business' bottom line by identifying inefficient consumption and waste disposal. Diverting recyclable material from your regular trash may also reduce your disposal service expenses because disposal costs for recyclables are lower than for trash.
