Keep Your Recyclables Out of the Garbage!
The California Integrated Waste Management Act of 1989 (AB939) required that local agencies divert from landfills at least 50% of their waste generated by the year 2000 and continue to meet this goal yearly. The City has met the goal and continues to meet their goal as required each year.
The City still encourages the residents and businesses in the City to continue recycling in order to help us comply with AB939. For more information on AB939 please visit www.ciwmb.ca.gov/Statutes/Legislation/CalHist/1985to1989.htm and for more information on the City's diversion rates and waste stream profiles please visit www.ciwmb.ca.gov/Profiles/Juris/Default.asp
