The regulation was adopted at CalRecycle’s January 17, 2012 Monthly Public Meeting . This regulation reflects the statutory provisions of AB 341 ( Chapter 476, Statutes of 2011 [Chesbro, AB 341] ) and provides additional procedural clarifications. The regulation was approved by the Office of Administrative Law on May 7, 2012 and became effective immediately. On June 27, 2012 the Governor signed Senate Bill 1018 which included an amendment that requires a business that generates 4 cubic yards or more of commercial solid waste per week to arrange for recycling services.
Bulky wastes must be placed curbside on the prescribed collection schedule and at no other time. Property owners are responsible for the curb area(s) abutting their property, and may be fined up to $250 per offense for non-compliance. (See City Ordinance, Chapter 9 - (d). ORD 10-16 )
