Recycling for Businesses
Burrtec Waste Industries (Burrtec) offers a comprehensive commingled recycling program which is free to its businesses in Santa Clarita. Commingled recycling simply means that you can place all of the items listed in the flyer 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. Certain California legislation requires businesses to establish specific types of recycling programs. See below for more information and if your business is not recycling, please contact Burrtec at (661) 222-2249 to establish a program and keep these items out of the landfill.
Assembly Bill 341 became effective on October 6, 2011, which mandates businesses and multifamily complexes to establish regular recycling collection. This means all Santa Clarita businesses with four yards or more of collection services per week are required to establish and maintain recycling service.
Fortunately, the franchise between the City of Santa Clarita and 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. Please contact Burrtec’s Customer Service Department at (661) 222-2249 to assist your business in setting up free recycling.
