Construction and Demolition Debris (C&D)

Business Recycling

Customer Access to Recycling - AB 827 (this Bill amended AB341 and AB1826) AB 827 is intended to educate and involve consumers in achieving the state’s recycling goals by requiring businesses to make recycling bins (general recycling and food waste) available to customers. This law targets businesses that sell products meant for immediate consumption. 

Who must comply: businesses that generate 4 cubic yards or more of commercial solid waste must provide their customers with recycling containers that are visible, accessible, and adjacent to each trash container. 

How to comply: Details on full-service restaurants versus other types of food establishments are included since full-service restaurants do not have to provide properly labeled containers for patrons, but must provide properly labeled next to trash containers for employees to separate recyclables and organics for customers.

Construction and Demolition (C&D) Debris

Many of the materials generated from you project can, and should be recycled. According to the Green Building Standards Code of the City of Brea and Chapter 8.29 of the Brea City Code, you are required to identify materials from your project that will be reused, recycled, or disposed of. The required goal is to reuse or recycle at least 65% of project waste. Before permit issuance, a Waste Management Plan must be submitted to, and approved by, the Public Works Department.
