What is AB 1826?
The State of California passed the Mandatory Organics Recycling Law AB 1826 (effective April 1, 2016) to reduce the number of compostable materials sent to landfills. AB 1826 phases in requirements for businesses that generate specified amounts of organic waste, per week, to arrange recycling services for that material. Valley Vista Services Commercial Organic Waste Recycling Program was created for those generators that either meet the requirements of mandatory organics recycling (AB1826), or those generators that choose to opt into a source-separated organics recycling program.
