In an effort to expand recycling in California and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, recycling became mandatory this month for all California businesses and public entities subscribing to 4 or more cubic yards of waste collection service per week and multifamily complexes with 5 units or more, regardless of waste collection service level. According to the 2008 Statewide Waste Characterization data, the commercial sector generates nearly three fourths of the solid waste in California. The City of Elk Grove implemented a Business and Multi-Family Recycling Program in July of 2010. To help promote recycling, the City provides free recycle bins for local businesses. For more information or to request a free recycle bin, contact Christian Punsal at 627-3452 or firstname.lastname@example.org
