Bill 939 (AB 939)
The State of California
implemented Assembly Bill 939
"The Integrated Waste Management
Act of 1989" to regulate solid waste management and establish integrated waste management guidelines. These priorities are: source reduction, recycling and composting, and environmentally safe transformation and land disposal.
The following are major provisions
for AB 939:
Board Review and
This implementation provides the State authority to impose fines up to $10,000 per day to Cities and Counties not adhering to State, City and County laws and regulations.
Waste Diversion Mandates
These mandates require each City and County to implement landfill diversion 25% by the year 1995; 50% by the year 2000 and seeking to impose a 75% landfill diversion rate by 2020.
This replaced the County Solid Waste Management Plan. This plan requires all Cities and Counties to implement a plan for waste characterization, source reduction, recycling, composting, solid waste facility capacity, education and public information, special waste and household hazardous waste.
California Integrated Waste
This Board replaced the Solid Waste Management Board. This Board represents the public, private sector and environmental interests.
Permitting and Enforcement
This provides a statewide system for permitting, inspections, enforcement and maintenance for solid waste facilities also adopting standards to protect air, water and land from pollution.
Bill 341 (AB 341)
Signed by the Governor in October 2011, Assembly Bill 341 requires that on or before July 1, 2012, local governments must implement, and businesses must comply with, a mandatory commercial solid waste recycling program.
According to the State, the commercial sector generates over 60 percent of California's solid waste. Therefore, AB 341 requires businesses that generate four cubic yards or more of commercial solid waste per week, and multifamily residential dwellings of five units or more, to implement a recycling program.
To comply with the State requirements, the City has an exclusive franchise agreement with Advance Disposal Co. to collect, process, recycle and dispose of solid waste from residential premises and commercial businesses in the City of Hesperia. This process is considered to be the equivalent of mandatory commercial recycling in that all solid waste generated by businesses and multifamily units will be collected by Advance Disposal Co. using existing trash enclosures and bins, and processed through a mixed waste materials recovery facility. This eliminates the need to modify existing bin enclosures to accommodate separate recycling bins and train employees on recycling requirements. As required by AB 341, the City of Hesperia and Advance Disposal Co. will track, monitor and report to the State on program effectiveness and diversion data.
Commercial businesses may choose to conduct their own source separation activities and self-haul to a recycling facility. Such activities may enable businesses to reduce their solid waste trash collection costs by reducing their bin size (s) and/or frequency of trash pick-up. It is an existing right of businesses to donate or sell their recyclable material.
Detailed information, resources, and answers to frequently asked questions are available on CalRecycle's website.
Bill 1826 (AB 1826)
Commencing April 1, 2016, the bill AB 1826, requires a business that generates eight (8) cubic yards or more of organic waste per week to arrange for recycling services for that organic waste in a specified manner. The bill would decrease the amount of organic waste under which a business would be subject to those requirements from 8 cubic yards or more to 4 cubic yards or more on January 1, 2017. The bill would also require a business that generates 4 cubic yards or more of commercial solid waste per week, on and after January 1, 2019, to
arrange for organic waste recycling services and, if the department makes a specified determination, would decrease
that amount to 2 cubic yards, on or after January 1, 2020.
