San Diego Recycling Services
Recycling programs have become a valuable asset in establishing an environmentally conscious mindset for the general public. As an environmentally conscious waste hauler operating throughout the County of San Diego, Tayman Industries, Inc., has always been on the forefront of recycling in San Diego. Since 1994, we have grown from one of the largest glass recyclers in the County to one of the largest, independent franchised waste haulers in the City of San Diego.
On March 1, 2008, the City of San Diego implemented a recycling ordinance requiring Commercial and Industrial, Multi-Family Residential, and Single Family homes to establish a recycling program. Please scroll down for additional information on the Recycling Ordinance and printable versions of Tayman Industries, Inc., recycling flyer. Prior to the inception of the City’s Recycling Ordinance, Tayman Industries, Inc., has always recommended the establishment of recycling programs not only to reduce the costs of your monthly trash service, but also to provide relief to our landfills and ultimately assist in the preservation of the environment.

About AB 341
As of July 1, 2012, the state legislation of AB 341 took effect. AB-341 is designed to help meet California’s recycling goal of 75% by the year 2020. This law requires California commercial enterprises and public entities that generate four or more cubic yards per week of waste, and multi-family housing complexes with five or more units, to adopt recycling practices.
Benefits of AB 341
In addition to less material going into local landfills, AB-341 will also contribute to San Diego County’s economy. The Department of Resource Recycling estimates that local jurisdictions, schools, and businesses will save $40 million to $60 million per year from 2012-2020, due to lower recycling versus disposal costs. A higher volume of recyclables will also create manufacturing and recycling jobs and help contribute to California’s competitiveness.
Compliance with AB 341 is easy and Tayman Industries, Inc. is here to help
Tayman Industries, Inc. is working with the cities that it serves on a program to support commercial customers and multi-family complexes in meeting the AB341 requirements. Tayman Industries, Inc. can also provide customers with a free waste and recycling assessment. For some examples of our successful recycling programs, please visit our consulting page.
