Refuse Separation Ordinance: Recology Resources Available
The Refuse Separation Ordinance was passed by the board of supervisors and this new law will take effect July 1, 2019. It is impacting very few of our GGRA members/those officially in the Large Refuse Generator category. The city has published a list of Large Refuse Generators (LRG) that fall under this legislation. It includes 12 restaurant properties.
Recology is offering customers the opportunity to receive a pre-audit (before 7/1/2019) after the completion of an self-assessment form.
