Bottle Bill Resource Guide

AB 815

Bill Number and Name AB815 An act to add Section 41826 to the Public Resources Code, relating to solid waste.
Primary Sponsor Assembly Member Aguiar-Curry
Proposed Changes/Summary
The proposed legislation would incentivize cities, counties, and regional agencies to implement dual-stream curbside collection instead of single-stream by finding that any jurisdiction that has adopted dual-stream has made a “good faith effort” to implement source reduction and recycling, and is therefore not subject to administrative civil penalties for non-compliance with local diversion mandates contained in Section 41780 of the Public Resources Code.
