Document Description
Mandatory Recycling Ordinance: StopWaste.Org is analyzing the environmental impacts of an ordinance that would achieve the Agency's goal of 90 percent diversion of readily recyclable materials, in accordance with Objective 2.4 of the Alameda County Integrated Waste Management Plan (ColWMP). The Mandatory Recycling Ordinance being considered would require all Alameda County single-family, multi-family, and commercial generators to segregate recyclable and organic materials for recovery. Single Use Bag Reduction Ordinance: StopWaste.Org is also analyzing the environmental impacts of a Single Use Bag Reduction Ordinance regulating the distribution of single use carryout bags at the point of sale in Alameda County. The ordinance under consideration would prohibit the free distribution of single use carryout paper and plastic bags at the point of sale (i.e., check-out) for all retail establishments in Alameda County except restaurants and nonprofit charitable reuse organizations.
