Food Waste

The City of Rosemead has a commercial food waste recycling program available to all businesses.

California State Law AB 1826: Mandatory Commercial Organics Recycling mandates that businesses with more than 4 yards of trash per week are required to compost food waste.

The City has a great composting program with Republic Services to offer businesses different options to begin composting!

Here are flyers and posters to help you get started:

  1. Food Scrap Collection Equipment & Materials Flyer
  2. AB 1826 Mandatory Commercial Recycling Brochure
  3. Food Waste Recycling Poster (Mandarin Translation)
  4. Food Donation Flyer
  5. Container Sizes

Republic Services can visit your business and provide you with free stickers and posters to help you get started! To schedule a free waste consultation, email Renee at [email protected]

Businesses that are outstanding environmental leaders and participate in recycling and food waste recycling programs are nominated for the new “Business Sustainability & Environmental Leader Award”. Email Renee at [email protected] for more information!
