Regulations & Compliance

StopWaste can help Alameda County businesses, non-profits and institutions stay informed about current landfill bans, policies and ordinances related to proper collection and recycling of resources and hazardous wastes. Our goal is to provide links to current information so that you can operate your organization most efficiently.

Some regulations apply within Alameda County, others apply only to operations within certain cities, and some affect all commercial accounts within California.
