State Mandated Recycling Requirements

California State Assembly Bills 341 and 1826 establish waste generation thresholds for mandatory commercial recycling and mandatory organic recycling for California businesses.

Mandatory Commercial Recycling (MCR)

Businesses generating 4 or more cubic yards of solid waste weekly are required to have a recycling program. To set up a State compliant recycling program, contact the City at (916) 617-4590 or recycle@cityofwestsacramento.org

Mandatory Organic Recycling (MORe)

Businesses generating 4 or more cubic yards of solid waste weekly (trash plus recycling) are required to divert the organic portion of this waste from the landfill. To set up organic recycling services, contact an organics recycling service provider directly. These waste haulers are currently permitted to provide roll-off bin trash service in West Sacramento and may offer organic recycling services in cart, front load or roll-off bins.  Organic recycling services are open market in West Sacramento.  So, businesses may also subscribe to an organic recycling service that falls outside of the City’s exclusive contract and solid waste hauling permit programs. Example of organic recyclers falling into this category include landscape service providers that haul debris to a compost facility, food donation collection providers, and pallet recyclers that offer collection services.  For assistance setting up your compliant organic recycling program or determining if you are required to recycle organics, please contact the City at (916) 617-4590 or recycle@cityofwestsacramento.org.

How to Comply    

Businesses may use a combination of services and practices to achieve compliance with the MORe Requirements, including:

  • Reduce the amount of waste your business produces
  • Sell or donate your edible food waste
  • Recycle your organic waste onsite, i.e. grass cycle, chip and mulch
  • Subscribe to a landscape service that hauls landscape waste to an organics recycling facility
  • Self-haul to an organics processing facility
  • Subscribe to an organic waste recycling service

For additional information on State recycling requirements for businesses please visit: www.calrecycle.ca.gov/commercial.

We want your input. Please take our MORe survey .  Survey responses that include a  business name, service address and contact information, may be used by the City to help determine MORe exemptions and  compliance.
