Mandatory Commercial Recycling

California's Mandatory Commercial Recycling Measure adopted by CalRecycle on January 17, 2012 focuses on increased commercial waste diversion as a method to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. It is designed to achieve a reduction in GHG emissions of 5 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalents. To achieve the measure’s objective, an additional 2 to 3 million tons of materials annually will need to be recycled from the commercial sector by the year 2020 and beyond.

On and after July 1, 2012, a business that generates four cubic yards or more of commercial solid waste per week or a multifamily residential dwelling of five units or more shall recycle.

To learn more about this new law, visit CalRecycle's website section on the Mandatory Commercial Recycling Measure.

Solvang Storm Water Management Program Guides

The City of Solvang has published an introduction to the Solvang Storm Water Management Program for homeowners and business owners.

Most people believe that the largest source of water pollution in urban areas comes from specific sources such as factories and sewage treatment plants. In fact, the largest sources of water pollution comes from city streets, neighborhoods, construction sites and parking lots.

This type of pollution is sometimes called “non-point  source” pollution. This pollution is spread to our water bodies and natural habitats as a result of run-off, either as a result of rainfall (storm water) or excessive water use (urban).
