City of Dublin

 

The City of Dublin has “opted out” of the Mandatory Recycling Ordinance (ACWMA Ordinance 2012-01). Businesses and multi-family complexes in Alameda County are still subject to the Plant Debris Landfill Ban Ordinance (ACWMA Ordinance 2008-01), and those compliance requirements listed below. All multi-family complexes with 5 or more units and commercial accounts subscribing to 4 or more cubic yards of refuse collection service per week anywhere in California are subject to State Law and regulations mandating recycling service (AB 341). As of April 1, 2016, multi-family properties and businesses in California that generate 8 or more cubic yards of organics waste may also be mandated to arrange for organics waste recycling collection services by AB 1826.

Compliance Requirements

ACWMA Ordinance 2008-01 requires businesses and institutions in Alameda County generating 4 or more cubic yards of garbage per week to separate all plant debris from garbage and recyclable materials. Those with on-site service must place plant debris in a designated organics collection bin. Businesses can arrange for the removal of plant debris by their landscaper. The landscaper must haul to an approved facility and must deposit plant debris in the facility’s designated “clean green” area.
