Mandatory Commercial Recycling Law

In 1991, the City of Cypress implemented a curb side recycling program. This program was started in response to state legislation which mandated all California cities and counties to divert 25% of trash generated by 1995 and 50% by 2000. Consolidated Disposal, the City's franchise trash hauler, picks up recycling containers bi-weekly in accordance with a recycling schedule. The following is a listing of items that are recyclable and and non-recyclable:
