Solid Waste & Recycling

Solid Waste and Recycling

Every city and county in California is required to divert 50% of their waste from going to the landfill or face fines of up to $10,000 per day. Woodland has exceeded that goal by diverting 53% of their waste in 2018, and we strive to reach California's new diversion goal of 75% by 2020. By reducing waste, reusing materials, recycling and composting, Woodland is making way to a sustainable future.

Commercial Recycling & Organics Recycling Requirements

According to a 2008 waste characterization study, the commercial sector generates nearly three quarters of the solid waste in California. In an effort to increase recovery of recyclable and compostable material, and reduce greenhouse (GHG) emissions from materials being sent to landfills, AB 341 and AB 1826 were passed requiring commercial diversion programs. Find out if your business or multi-family property are subject to these requirements.
