WAIVER

Eligibility to be Waived from AB 341 if:

Physical Space Waiver- This waiver is for businesses demonstrating that the premises lack adequate space for a recycling container or bin. This should be a temporary implementation and the space needs to be reevaluated every 5 years. Compliance ideas include bin sharing, different sized bins, or expanded trash enclosures for multiple commercial businesses.

Self-Hauling Waiver- This waiver can be used if a company self-hauls the recyclable waste in order to compost or divert from landfills to elsewhere. Those who receive this waiver must keep records of the quantity of the recyclables, as well as documentation proving it does not end up in a landfill.

Existing Alternative Service Waiver- This waiver can be used if a business or multi-family complex contracts a person or organization that provides recycling collection. In order to use this waiver, there must be documents recording the material collected, a contracting statement, and proof that the material collected is not landfilled.
