Recycle and compost collection services are required per California's Organics Reduction and Recycling Law (SB 1383). Subscribing to these required services may help your business meet SB 1383 compliance and also realize cost savings as recycle and compost collection services cost 40% less than comparable landfill (garbage) collection service.
The table below shows the most common commercial service levels and rates if the containers are serviced once a week.
Monthly Rates for Commercial Collection Services
