Many common products that we use in our daily lives contain potentially hazardous ingredients and require special care when disposing of these products. It is illegal to dispose of hazardous waste in the garbage, down storm drains, or onto the ground. Chemicals in illegally or improperly disposed hazardous waste can be released into the environment and contaminate our air, water, and possibly the food we eat. And by throwing hazardous waste in the garbage, you can cause additional hazards to your garbage handler.

In order for California to achieve its aggressive recycling and waste diversion goals it must recycle its organic waste. The Mandatory Organics Recycling Law (AB 1826) requires that businesses and other generators of 4 or more cubic yards of solid waste per week arrange for recycling services for the following types of organic waste: food waste, green waste, landscape and pruning waste, nonhazardous wood waste, and food-soiled paper waste that is mixed with food waste. Multifamily complexes must arrange for recycling services for the same material with the exception of food waste and food-soiled paper.
Most organic waste is recyclable through methods such as composting, mulching, and anaerobic digestion. Organics must be separated from trash and you can comply with this law by choosing a combination of any of the following recycling program options:

California landfills are heavily impacted by over 4 million tons of C&D debris each year. By diverting C&D from landfills, it can help the City of Fullerton to achieve and maintain its diversion goals established by AB 939.
Effective January 1, 2014, CALGreen mandates permitted new residential and non-residential building construction, demolition and certain additions and alteration projects to recycle and/or salvage for reuse a minimum 50 percent of the nonhazardous construction and demolition (C&D) debris generated during the project. Common C&D Materials include lumber, drywall, metals, masonry (brick concrete, etc.), carpet, plastic, pipe, rocks, dirt, paper, cardboard, or green waste related to land development.
