The SBA program was developed by Agency staff in preparation of Assembly Bill 341, known as the Mandatory Commercial Recycling law. The SBA program fosters a positive relationship between local businesses and the Agency. The SBA provides businesses with recycling options that make financial sense. Agency staff continuously encourage businesses to recycle and have promoted the program to businesses through informational flyer mailings and in-person outreach. By joining the SBA, businesses gain community recognition for their efforts. Partners appreciate the assistance in complying with the Commercial Recycling mandate.


AB 341 requires any California business that generates four or more cubic yards of commercial solid waste per week or is a multi-family dwelling of five or more units to recycle. The law requires local jurisdictions to inform their businesses, public entities, and multi-family complexes of the state mandate to recycle. The SBA program helps the Agency meet its informational requirement and generates diversion data for reporting purposes.


It is important to note that the County’s AB 341 compliance rate has risen from 42.8% in 2013 to 66.5% in 2015 and 71.4% at the close of 2016.
