New Recycling Reporting Ordinance for Businesses

Effective January 1, 2015

The RethinkWaste Board of Directors recently passed SBWMA Ordinance No. 002 to help gather data on recycling activities taking place in our service area separate from those services provided by Recology San Mateo County. The new Ordinance applies to businesses that back haul recyclable materials, and haulers, brokers and other entities that provide recycling collection services to businesses in our service area. The Ordinance requires that these types of businesses report recycling data (such as weight, types of recyclables collected, and city collected in) on a quarterly basis starting in 2015.
