California's Residential Requirements for Solid Waste 

Solid Waste and Recycling Regulations - Assembly Bill 939 Integrated Waste Management Act
In 1989, Assembly Bill 939, known as the Integrated Waste Management Act, was passed due to the increase in the waste stream and the decrease in landfill capacity. As a result, the California Integrated Waste Management Board was established, and then the name changed to California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery or CalRecycle. The mandated responsibility of this department is to reduce waste, promote management of all waste materials to their highest best use, and to protect public health and the environment. To meet these responsibilities, the state legislature has given CalRecycle enforcement authority in local government waste diversion. 

Implementation and Compliance

In order to protect the public health, safety and well-being, and for compliance with State Regulations, the District amended its franchise agreement with CR&R, and is in the process of implementing uniform collection of trash, recycling, and compostable materials.

May contain: person, man, adult, male, handbag, bag, accessories, wheel, machine, car, vehicle, transportation, pants, clothing, shoe, and footwear
