Save Money with Recycling


Recycle and SaveEvaluating how and what waste is produced in your business may uncover costly inefficiencies. For a business, saving money is the bottom line. If a business reduces overall costs by separating materials, such as cardboard from trash, a recycling program can be a cost-effective and responsible solution.  Supporting a GREEN business will enhance your business image as well. And if these are not enough reasons to recycle, you should also know that commercial recycling is required by law. 


With AB 341, the State of California now requires that businesses that generate 34 cubic yards or more of waste arrange for recycling services. In Stockton, up to 4 cubic yard of recycling services are free of charge.


Stockton Municipal Code 8.04.070 requires that recyclable materials and green waste be separated from other solid waste for collection.
