As required by the State of California via SB 1383, all Californians are now required to sort separate food waste from recyclables and green waste - this affects all Los Alamitos residents and businesses. If you are a business or multi-family complex of five units or more facing space constraint issues with an additional bin, you may be eligible to receive a waiver form these mandatory programs; however, only those who request and receive a waiver from the City are exempt from mandatory participation. If a waiver is not approved by the City, your business or property will be required to participate in the mandated services.
To submit an application for a waiver, please complete the
following application and submit to the Development Services Department for review: click here to download the SB 1383 Solid Waste & Recycling Regulation - Waiver Request Form.
