Recycling and AB341

What is AB 341?

The State of California passed Assembly Bill 341, requiring mandatory commercial recycling, starting July 1, 2012. Commercial businesses and Multi-family complexes that are affected must either source separate trash from recyclables on-site or co-mingle trash and recyclables in one container and let Valley Vista Services do all the dirty work.

More details can be found at the CalRecycle.

Who is affected?

State law now requires all businesses that generate 4 or more cubic yards of waste weekly and Multi-family properties of 5 units or more to recycle. With the new Assembly Bill requiring mandatory recycling Valley Vista Services (VVS) Co-mingled Trash and Recycling Program is the perfect solution.

How are your affected?

If your business or multi-family complex falls under the new AB 341 a Valley Vista Services Green Team Commercial Recycling representative will be contacting you shortly. Under the new Bill it is required that VVS visit your site, at least once every two years, to offer any assistance you may need and to help you comply with the new state law.
