Recycling for Businesses
Burrtec offers a comprehensive commingled recycling program which is free to its businesses. Commingled recycling simply means that you can place all of the items listed below into the recycling bin without separating each type of material into its own bag or compartment and Burrtec will take care of the rest. If your business is not recycling, please consider taking advantage of this free program to keep these items out of the landfill.
The Governor of California signed Assembly Bill 341 on October 6, 2011, which mandates businesses and multifamily complexes establish regular recycling collection. Therefore, as of July 1, 2012, the State of California required the City of Santa Clarita to create a commercial recycling program. This means all Santa Clarita businesses with four yards or more of collection services per week will be required to establish and maintain recycling service.
Fortunately, the franchise between the City of Santa Clarita and Burrtec Waste Industries (Burrtec) offers free recycling containers to all businesses within City limits. The recycling containers are available in either 1.5-cubic-yard or 3-cubic-yard containers.
We encourage businesses to take advantage of this free service to start recycling and save money to comply with the state mandate effective July 1, 2012. Please contact Burrtec’s Customer Service Department at (661) 222-2249 to assist your business in setting up free recycling.
