Event Legislation and Recycling
At Athens Services, we can help you comply with State Recycling mandates for events and venues!
AB 2176 – Recycling Law for Large Events and Venues:
In 2004, the State of California passed AB 2176, a law that requires special events and public venue facilities with over 2,000 participants per day to develop and implement a solid waste management plan and implement recycling and waste reduction strategies.

AB 341 – California Recycling Mandate (applies to venues and temporary events):
In October 2011, Governor Brown signed Assembly Bill 341 into law, setting a 75% recycling goal for California by Year 2020. This landmark piece of legislation mandates that all California commercial or public entities that generate 4 or more cubic yards of solid waste per week, and for those multifamily dwellings of 5 or more units, must arrange recycling services by and following July 1, 2012. Recycling compliance also applies to venues and temporary events. For more information on AB 341, see the Diversion section of our website.
