Customer Access to Recycling – AB 827

Assembly Bill 827 (AB 827) amended existing California statute, namely the Mandatory Commercial Recycling (MCR) and Mandatory Commercial Recycling Organics (MORe) laws. Effective July 1, 2020, MORe-covered businesses must provide organics recycling containers to collect products purchased and consumed by customers on the premises. These containers must be placed adjacent to trash containers and be visible, easily accessible, and clearly marked. This law targets businesses that sell products meant for immediate consumption. If a business does not sell any of the organic materials for immediate consumption on the premises, then the business does not have to provide an organics container in all areas where disposal containers are provided for customers.
