Alameda County Waste Management Authority Ordinance 2012-01 took effect in July 2012 and requires businesses generating four or more cubic yards of solid waste per week and all multi-family property owners (five units or more) to obtain a level of recycling service adequate for the amount of recyclables they generate. This local ordinance builds upon a California State Law AB 341, which requires the same commercial and multi-family accounts to have recycling services.
The local Ordinance specifies what materials are to be recycled: cardboard, newspaper, white paper, mixed recyclable paper, recyclable glass food and beverage containers, metal (aluminum and steel) food and beverage containers, PET (#1) and HDPE (#2) plastic bottles. Those who self-haul loads of discards to local waste facilities are also required to separate the specified recyclables. Under the Alameda County Waste Management Authority Ordinance, fines may be issued to multi-family properties not in compliance.
