Mandatory Commercial Recycling (AB 341)

AB 341 requires businesses to implement a recycling program if they are generating four cubic yards or more of solid waste per week. The IWMA has a similar ordinance requiring businesses to have recycling services.  All local garbage providers in San Luis Obispo County include recycling with garbage service.

Starting a business recycling program is quick and easy. Contact the IWMA at 805-782-8530 and our Recycling Specialist will assist you. If you aren’t sure how many cubic yards of waste you are generating or if you would like to expand your current program, give us a call.

AB 341 also requires multifamily complexes or apartment buildings of five units or more to implement a recycling program, regardless of how much waste they generate.


If you have questions about setting up a program contact IWMA at 805-782-8530.
