SB827: Commercial and Organic Waste Recycling Bins

California’s Legislature, through AB 827 (McCarty, 2019), amended two existing laws - the Mandatory Commercial Recycling law, PRC Section 42649-42649.7, commonly referred to as MCR, and the Mandatory Commercial Recycling Organics Recycling law, PRC Section 42649.8-42649.87, commonly referred to as MORe. 

AB 827 is intended to educate and involve consumers in achieving the state’s recycling goals by requiring businesses subject to MCR and/or MORe to make recycling and/or organic recycling bins available to customers.
