For information on waste reduction, implementation of a recycling program or trash collection services, please contact one of the authorized haulers below:

Important Notice: Beginning July 1, 2012, the State of California will require that all businesses that generate four cubic yards or more of refuse per week implement a recycling program. This requirement is set forth in Assembly Bill 341, which was passed by the California legislature in October 2011. Property owners should contact their refuse company to discuss available recycling options.

In addition, Assembly Bill 1826 requires businesses, commercial centers, and multifamily residential dwellings with five or more units, that generate two cubic yards or more of organic waste per week, to arrange for ongoing organic waste recycling services as of July 1, 2020. To assist you with these laws, contact your waste hauler to arrange for recycling services or to apply for an exemption. Please visit their website for further information.

In September 2016, Governor Brown signed Senate Bill 1383 (SB 1383), establishing targets to achieve a 75 percent reduction of the disposal of organic waste in California by 2025. In accordance with this law, all multi-family complexes and businesses in the City of Riverside are required to subscribe to a recycling and organics recycling collection service with their hauler by July 1, 2022. This will help divert organic materials from landfills, including both food waste and other green waste, such as yard trimmings.
