What is AB341?
AB 341 is California’s mandatory recycling law.
In 2012, California implemented AB 341, a mandatory commercial recycling law that requires all businesses that generate four cubic yards or more of commercial solid waste per week to participate in a recycling program. AB 341 sets a bold goal for the state’s waste reduction efforts by establishing a 75% waste diversion goal.
