Mandatory Commercial Recycling

Businesses and Multi-family Residences

AB 341 (Chesbro, Chapter 476, Statutes of 2011) sets forth the requirements of the statewide Mandatory Commercial Recycling (MCR) program. Businesses, including public entities and multifamily residential dwellings that consist of 5 or more units, that generate 4 or more cubic yards of commercial solid waste per week shall arrange for recycling services.

Businesses in Ceres that meet the threshold for mandatory service will automatically be subscribed to recycling collection services.
