Collection Requirements for Public Universities and Community Colleges


Non-local entities, including public universities and community colleges, are currently required to maintain mandatory commercial recycling and organic recycling programs, including ensuring that properly labeled recycling containers are available to collect bottles, cans, paper, cardboard, food waste, and other recyclable materials. SB 1383 builds upon these efforts by expanding the definition of organic waste to include food scraps, landscape and pruning waste, organic textiles and carpets, lumber, wood, manure, biosolids, digestate, and sludges.

Mandatory Commercial Recycling (AB 341)
The Mandatory Commercial Recycling (MCR) law went into effect in June 2012 and requires public entities that generate a certain threshold of solid waste per week to reuse, recycle, compost, or otherwise divert solid waste from disposal.   

Mandatory Commercial Organics Recycling (AB 1826) 
Mandatory Organic Recycling (MORe) requires regulated entities to implement an organic waste recycling program to divert food waste, green waste, landscape and pruning waste, nonhazardous wood waste, and food-soiled paper waste that is mixed in with food waste.
