Recycling can help your business's bottom line by identifying inefficient consumption and waste disposal. Diverting recyclable material from your regular trash may also reduce your disposal service expenses because disposal costs for recyclables are lower than for trash. Newly adopted AB 341 requires commercial recycling for businesses and multifamily complexes with at least 5 units that generate more than 4 cubic yards of solid waste per week starting July 1, 2012. For more information on the bill please visit the CalRecyle website.
Waste Audit for Businesses
Businesses can contact the City of Rialto's Solid Waste Management Division and request a site visit to conduct a waste audit. A waste audit looks for potential ways to divert or reduce waste such as switching cardboard box disposal from a trash bin to a recycling bin and recommending reusable instead of disposable cups in the break room.
