California's Mandatory Commercial Recycling Laws


The Sacramento Regional Solid Waste Authority (SWA) regulates business recycling in both the City and County of Sacramento.  Several state laws mandate diversion of recyclables, food scraps, and green waste from landfill disposal.  The SWA requires all businesses in Sacramento to separate their waste into recyclables, organics and landfill trash. 

More information about the recycling requirements can be found on the SWA's website.

All multi-family residences with 5 or more units, regardless of weekly trash generation, are also required to have recycling services. (Please note that, within the City of Sacramento, all residences are required to have recycling services.)
