July 02, 2019
Under Alameda County’s Mandatory Recycling Ordinance, most businesses, institutions and multi-family properties are required to have recycling and organics collection service and to sort materials properly. A new series of videos is now available to help you set up a successful recycling and composting program, in addition to other resources like posters and guides.

Consider using the videos in staff trainings or emailing the links to all your employees, contractors and/or tenants for review at their own pace. The videos also work great as a refresher on the requirements and how to comply during day-to-day operations. Available in English, Spanish and Chinese.
