Commercial Recycling

Updated August 23, 2022

With the passage of Assembly Bill 341 (AB341), businesses and public entities that generate four (4) or more cubic yards of waste per week and multi-family units of five (5) or more are required to participate in a recycling program. The purpose of the new State law is to reduce greenhouse emissions by diverting commercial solid waste from landfills and expand opportunities for recycling in California.

The City of Cerritos and its exclusive franchise waste (and recycling) hauler, Athens Services, make it convenient for businesses and multi-family complexes to meet the requirements of AB341. Many businesses in Cerritos participate in the City's mixed waste processing program in which Athens Services processes solid waste to recover recyclables. Many more businesses have taken a more active role by setting up an on-site source separation program with the assistance of Athens Services.

To find out more information on commercial recycling, please contact the City of Cerritos Environmental Services Division at (562) 916-1226.
