Mandatory Commercial Organics Recycling (MORe)

Local jurisdictions are required to implement a commercial organics waste recycling program that includes education, outreach and monitoring of regulated/covered businesses. This report provides information regarding those efforts by jurisdiction and years 2016-2020. Mandatory Commercial Organics Recycling (MORe) data after 2020 can be found on Jurisdiction Electronic Annual Data Reports. Please see the Mandatory Commercial Recycling (MCR) Diversion Program System report for jurisdiction information about mandatory commercial recycling per AB 341.

For additional information listed by jurisdiction, select "Commercial Organics Recycling" from the Diversion Program Detail Summary to show diversion program details including Collection Targets, Collection Types, and Material Types Collected.

Locate jurisdiction contacts (city, county, or regional agency) and/or CalRecycle staff assigned to a jurisdiction for more information. CalRecycle advises businesses to contact their "Annual Report Contacts" or "Jurisdiction Contacts" to find out how to recycle in their community and if there are any specific requirements in their community. Communities may have mandatory commercial recycling ordinances with different thresholds or more specific business recycling requirements than the state law. The local recycling coordinator also may have related business opportunities and/or resources to share.
