Mobile Food Facility Placarding Starts January 2017!

Effective January 1, 2017, the Green-Yellow-Red (GYR) placarding program will include food trucks, also known as Mobile Food Facilities (MFFs). Similar to the existing GYR placard program for fixed food facilities, the program will provide a clear and easily recognizable means of determining the food safety status of the MFF.


New Organics Recycle Law for Businesses and Multi-Family Complexes (State Law AB1826)

Heading this AB1826 project is Sacramento Regional Solid Waste Authority. The Business and Multi-Family Ordinance requires all commercial properties to separate recyclable materials from garbage waste. As established by April 1, 2016, businesses meeting certain thresholds are required to divert organic material. The deadline for implementation of recycling is January 1, 2017 for any generator of 4 or more cubic yards of organic waste per week.

For recycling services in compliance with AB1826 businesses may use franchised haulers, authorized recyclers or can self-haul recyclables to the recycling center. ​
