As of July 1, 2012, State law requires the following businesses to arrange for recycling services:
- Any business that generates 4 cubic yards or more of waste per week
- Multi-family communities with five or more units
How to Arrange for Recycling Services
Businesses/ multi-family communities that meet the threshold can easily recycle by requesting a commingled collection bin from Waste Management of Glenn County. Commercial recycling is included as part of your overall Waste Management service package at no additional cost.
Businesses/ multi-family communities may also donate, sell and/or make other arrangements for pick up and recycling of the materials. This includes self-hauling the materials to recycling facilities.
Opportunities to Save Money by Recycling
In Glenn County, you can save money by recycling more and disposing less. Disposing of less saves you money by reducing your trash service.
Opportunities to Save Resources and Help the Environment
Recycling conserves resources and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. It extends the life of our landfills and helps create a healthy environment for our community and future generations.
