What are the laws regarding organic waste?

California Assembly Bill (AB) 1826 sets requirements for some businesses and multifamily properties to recycle organic waste. As of January 1, 2019, businesses and multifamily residential dwellings of five or more units that generate more than four cubic yards of solid waste per week must arrange for organic materials to be diverted from the landfill. While businesses must divert all organic waste from disposal, multifamily properties are only required to recycle green waste at this time.
