Typically, jurisdictions will utilize hauler information to assess if businesses are recycling. Jurisdictions also have the ability to place additional requirements on businesses. Jurisdictions will want to discuss approaches with their Local Assistance and Market Development contact in advance and report in the Electronic Annual Report their efforts at monitoring.
It is important to note that the jurisdiction is not held accountable if a business chooses not to recycle, although the jurisdiction still needs to have outreach, education, and monitoring in place. The monitoring of businesses that are and are not recycling is not intended to be onerous for the jurisdiction. However, Local Assistance and Market Development staff will want to know if there are businesses that are not recycling so that CalRecycle staff can assist - as you may have heard in past webinars there are a lot of ways to get businesses, public entities, and multifamily complexes to recycle - and Local Assistance and Market Development staff would like to see how we can assist you in working with key businesses that are not recycling.
Discuss your ideas with your Local Assistance and Market Development representative to get additional feedback and consider coordinating with any other neighboring jurisdictions for consistency.
