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 will now need to apply for a Recycling Waiver instead of an exemption form.
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.
Exemptions to requirements of the Commercial Recycling Program (Municipal Code Chapter 13.36) may be granted at the discretion of the Community Development Department Director or his/her designee. An exemption may be revoked at any time at the discretion of the Director/designee if one or more of the factors justifying the exemption no longer exist, or other changes in circumstances warrant revocation. Unless revoked, this exemption shall be effective until February 28 of the following year. Annual exemption reports must be renewed and submitted by March 1 each year thereafter.
Annual Report: Please fill out the fields below for each type of material recycled in the previous calendar year. Please convert pounds to tons (2,000 lbs = 1 ton). Records of self-hauling and alternative recycling efforts (i.e. receipts, ledgers, etc.) must be maintained and made available to the City upon request.
Application: If this is your initial exemption application, please provide information on the types of materials your business generates and enter "0" in the "Tons Recycled" fields.
Shared Services: If you are sharing services, please explain and provide documentation, proof, or a letter from the business you are sharing with providing permission to use services.
Please provide detailed information about how your materials are stored at your property, where they are taken for recycling, how often and how much. Incomplete or insufficient information will cause your exemption to be delayed or denied.
Include documentation authorizing permission to use adjacent property's recycling services or proof that services are shared.
