Commercial Haulers are required to hold a current City of Sacramento franchise in order to conduct commercial waste hauling within the City of Sacramento limitsBusinesses and Multi-Family properties (generators) will be inspected for compliance to all state, county and city waste and recycling regulations by City of Sacramento Code Enforcement. 


New Organic REcycling Laws

Two laws, AB1826 and SB1383 regulate organic recycling in the State of California. Most businesses must now recycle food scraps - not just restaurants.  For information on how to comply with organics or recycling laws, visit our Business Commercial Waste page - here


In early June, 2021, the City of Sacramento and Sacramento County hosted a Mandatory Food Waste Recycling informational webinar for businesses & commercial properties.

Green waste from Landscaping

Commercial property owners must alert their gardeners that placement of yard waste in a City street at any time is illegal and both the owner and gardener may be liable for illegal dumping fines.

Leaf Season collection is for residential customers only. Commercial property owners, or their gardeners can contract with one of the franchised haulers for yard waste collection or dispose of the yard waste at one of the commercial yard waste disposal locations.
