Multi-Family Complexes

Mandatory Commercial Recycling Law  -  Assembly Bill 341 


As of July 1, 2012 California State law requires Multi-Family Complexes with five or more units to arrange for recycling services. Note: California State law requires apartment owners of complexes of less than 5 units to offer recycling services at resident(s) request. All apartment owners may require tenants to recycle.

What is Recyclable in Tehama County?

The following are recycling options to comply with the mandate:

  • Subscribe to the recycling collection service of Green Waste of Tehama (528‐8500) if located in the unincorporated County or the City of Red Bluff or subscribe with Waste Management if located in the City of Corning. Recycling service provided by either GreenWaste of Tehama or Waste Management features single‐stream recycling. Simply place all of your recyclables (cans, bottles, plastic, paper, cardboard, etc.) in the recycling dumpster. There is no need to further segregate the recyclables by material type. In many instances you can reduce your garbage service by implementing recycling.
  • Donate recyclable materials to a recycling company. Contact North Valley Services for free paper recycling at 528‐3035 or donate to another recycling company
  • Self‐haul recyclable material to the Material Recovery Facility (MRF) at the Tehama County/Red BluffLandfill for free, as long as all items are recyclable and segregated from trash.
  • Self‐haul recyclables to a local recycling center(e.g. Big Foot Recycling, Rob’s Recycling etc.)

Please call the Agency to assist with recycling services including but not limited to FREE desk-side recycling bins, while supplies last. Further compliance information is also available by calling the Agency at (530) 528-1103.
