Commercial Recycling: It’s as Easy as Being Green!

CR And R Logo

Recycling is not only good for the environment of Lake Forest; it can be great for your bottom line too! By exchanging a trash bin with a recycle bin, your monthly bill may be significantly reduced. Getting started with CR&R is as easy as being green. CR&R will structure a program for your business, and provide training and assistance to your employees. To start a recycle program for your business, contact CR&R at (949) 625-6735.

Recycling contributes to the overall well-being of the City of Lake Forest, and your business. Additionally it is the law! California enacted Assembly Bills 341 and 1826 which make it mandatory for businesses to divert recyclable material and food scraps from landfills.

AB 341-What needs to be Recycled?

  • Paper Products (cardboard, newspaper, bulk mail, paper bags)
  • Glass Products (food and beverage containers)
  • Metal Products (aluminum cans, steel cans, tin cans, empty aerosol cans)
  • Plastic Products (bottles, containers, plastic bags, plastic packaging)

AB 1826- What needs to be Recycled? 

  • Food Scraps (solid food, liquid food, oils, coffee filters, tea)
  • Food-Soiled Paper (napkins, towels, tissues, paper cups, used pizza boxes)
