The commercial sector generates nearly three-fourths of the waste in California much of which is recyclable. The Mandatory Commercial Recycling Law (AB 341) states that businesses, including public entities, generating four cubic yards or more of commercial solid waste per week or a multifamily residential dwelling of five units or more shall arrange for recycling services starting July 1, 2012. Businesses can take one or any combination of the following to divert solid waste from disposal: self-haul, subscribe to a hauler(s), arrange for the pickup of recyclable materials, or subscribe to a recycling service that may include mixed waste processing that yields diversion results comparable to source separation. Visit CalRecycle's website here for more information about Mandatory Commercial Recycling (AB 341). Please contact CR&R at (714) 372-8272 to sign up for recycling or find out about your recycling options for compliance.

Used Oil Certified Collection Centers
To properly dispose of your used motor oil at one of Orange's certified collection centers, search for the center nearest you at OC Health's website here. It is a good idea to call the collection center to verify their hours and make sure they are able to accept your used oil. This program is funded by a grant from CalRecycle and administered by Orange County Health Care Agency.
Recycled TiresThanks to a grant from CalRecycle, the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery, Orange has been able to subsidize the cost of paving its Arterial streets with Asphalt Rubberized Hot Mix (ARHM).
- The rehabilitation of four streets was possible for the Fiscal Year 2017 which utilized 184,025 pounds of crumb rubber, which diverted 15,335 tires from California’s landfills.
- The rehabilitation of six streets was possible for the Fiscal Year 2018 which utilized 315,000 pounds of crumb rubber, which diverted 26,250 tires from California’s landfills.
The California Legislature passed Assembly Bill 1826 (AB 1826) in 2014. This law requires all businesses and commercial centers that generate a certain amount of organic waste to develop a program to recycle that waste rather than sending it to a landfill. Organic waste includes food waste, vegetable trimmings, plate scrapings, spoiled food, and excess food inventory. The State regulations require that:
- Businesses that generate four 4 cubic yards or more of commercial solid waste per week shall arrange for ongoing organic waste recycling services by January 1, 2019.

Trash, Recycling, and Organics Letter for Development
New development applications are required to provide a Trash, Recycling, and Organics (TRO) Estimate Letter. This letter should outline the generation of trash, recyclables, and organics in cubic yard per week. Even if the generation is negligible please state so in the letter. Each of the three solid waste categories should be shown in cubic yards per week.
Included in the letter should be an explanation of how each form of solid waste will be managed. This may include service through CR&R, self-haul, or organic diversion through food donations.
