City of Murrieta to Host Virtual Recycling Workshop
The City of Murrieta is partnering with its waste hauler, Waste Management, to provide a virtual recycling workshop via zoom on April 21, 2021, at 10:30 a.m. This event will help Murrieta businesses understand the State of California’s recycling requirements. It will provide updates on State laws, specifically AB 1826 and AB 341, which mandate commercial recycling and organics collection for certain businesses.
Participants will learn about some of the different avenues to comply with these State mandates. Waste Management will share information about their services, and a local food pantry will discuss how to donate food and reduce waste.
The virtual workshop will also include a breakout session where the City will conduct business assessments to determine if a business qualifies for exemptions under State law. Specific documentation and proof will be required to verify eligibility for these exemptions on a case-by-case basis.
Interested businesses can visit www.MurrietaCa.gov for the live Zoom link. Reservations are not required. For additional information or questions, please contact Assistant to the City Manager Louie Lacasella, at (951) 461-6008 or [email protected].
