Wide Chunk of Commercial Sector Still Does Not Recycle
Despite the adoption of AB 341 and AB 1826, and years of public awareness about environmental issues, a large portion of California commercial and multi-family complexes still do not recycle.
Even in jurisdictions that offer no-charge or heavily discounted recycling service, it is not uncommon to find that over half the businesses still do not participate in recycling.
