Why Recycle?

State law now requires all businesses that generate 4 or more cubic yards of waste weekly to recycle.

Recycling may provide opportunities for your business to save money.

Recycling helps conserve resources and extends the life of California's landfills.  It also helps create a healthy environment for our community and future generations.
