Business and Multifamily Recycling

The City of Norco has special programs for business, multifamily, and construction waste recycling. For details, select a tab below...

Business Programs
California State law AB 341 requires commercial enterprises which generate four cubic yards or more of solid waste weekly to participate in recycling programs.  This requirement also includes multi-family housing complexes of five units or more, regardless of the amount of solid waste generated each week.

Waste Management, the City's franchised waste and recycling hauler, offers commercial recycling services.  Diverting recyclable material from your regular trash may reduce your monthly solid waste expenses because disposal costs for recyclables are lower than trash.

For more information on AB 341 visit the CalRecycle website, https://www.calrecycle.ca.gov/Recycle/Commercial/

For additional information regarding commercial recycling and solid waste programs, contact Waste Management at 800.423.9986. If you need assistance with selecting a recycling program that best suits your needs, you can also contact Waste Management for a FREE waste audit.

Multifamily Programs

The City has a mandatory trash pickup requirement for all properties in the city.  Norco contracts with Waste Management to provide solid waste and recycling services. Waste Management offers a variety of bin sizes ranging from 1.5 to 6 cubic yards for business trash and recycling needs.

Waste Management provides roll-off boxes ranging from 10 cubic yards to 40 cubic yards in size. These boxes are available for temporary or permanent use. Waste Management also offers recycling roll-off boxes for material such as: green waste, wood, concrete and asphalt.

For other services contact Waste Management at cslosangeles@wm.com or call 800-423-9986 for additional information on any commercial/business program.

Construction and Demolition (C&D) Waste

The City is concerned about illegal hauling activities that usually occur on construction sites. The unlawful hauling of construction and demolition debris to the landfill is a detriment to the city’s recycling and diversion efforts. Norco’s Municipal Code states that all owners of the City’s properties must have disposal service and that the service should be obtained through the City or designated franchise hauler Waste Management. The law was established to help the city meet state mandated recycling goals.

Since most construction and demolition debris may be recycled, the city is working in tandem with Waste Management to assure that all reusable and recyclable construction & demolition debris is diverted from the landfill. Contractors and developers can set up service at any job site in Norco by contacting Waste Management 800-423-9986.

Waste Management provides roll-off boxes ranging from 10 to 40 cubic yards in size. These boxes are available for temporary or permanent use. Waste Management also offers recycling roll-off boxes for material such as: green waste, wood, concrete and asphalt.

To prevent misses on your schedule and avoid potential accidents, please ensure that no vehicles are parked in front or on the sides of the container.

New: Mandatory Organics Recycling

Starting April 2016, the State’s Mandatory Organic Waste Recycling law (AB 1826) will require businesses that generate 8 cubic yards of organic waste (food or green waste) to arrange for organic waste recycling services. Effective January 2017, this requirement will extend to businesses that generate 4 cubic yards of organic waste.

Organic waste as defined in the law includes the following material: food waste, green waste, landscape and pruning waste, nonhazardous wood waste, and food-soiled paper waste that is mixed in with food waste. These categories represent the largest subsets of organic waste that is currently disposed in California.

Waste Management, the City's franchised waste and recycling hauler, offers commercial recycling services. Diverting recyclable material from your regular trash may reduce your monthly solid waste expenses because disposal costs for recyclables are lower than trash.

For more information on AB 1826, visit the CalRecycle website, http://www.calrecycle.ca.gov/Recycle/Commercial/Organics/

For additional information regarding commercial recycling and solid waste programs, contact Waste Management at 800-423-9986. If you need assistance with selecting a recycling program that best suits your needs, you can also contact Waste Management for a free waste audit.
