    1. Recycling Exemption Form

      As of January 2022, all commercial entities (businesses and multi-family properties) are required to divert their recyclable material from going to the landfill per the requirements of SB 1383. Businesses that are sharing Waste Management services or are participating in an alternative recycling service besides Waste Management must file a recycling exemption form annually. Businesses not participating due to space constraints or minimal generation must apply for a Recycling Waiver instead of an exemption form.

    2. Recycling includes the following materials

      Paper: Cardboard, newspaper, magazines, paper packaging, office paper, envelopes, junk mail, etc. 
      Metal: Aluminum, tin, and steel cans, empty aerosol cans, scrap metal, etc. 
      Plastic: All hard plastic containers with recycle symbols #1 to #7, bottles, jugs, buckets, crates, deli containers, etc. 
      Glass: Bottles, jars, wine bottles, etc.

      These materials are prohibited from being placed in the trash. If your business generates these materials, proof of recycling these items must be provided in the annual exemption reporting.
