Mandatory Organic Waste Recycling
California's Assembly Bill 1826 requires all businesses and commercial centers that generate a certain amount of organic waste to develop a program to recycle that waste, rather than send it to a landfill.  Organic waste includes food scraps, vegetable trimmings, plate scrapings, spoiled food, excess food inventory, and gardening wastes.  Acceptable.jpg
