City of Alameda to Consider Mandatory Recycling Rules for Commercial Buildings

Updated May 20, 2011 – the location of the second meeting has been changed to the Alameda Library at 1550 Oak Street, Meeting Room A.

The City of Alameda is considering implementing recycling regulations that would be mandatory for commercial and multi-family buildings. To that end, the City will hold two community meetings for businesses and multi-family property owners. The City says that these two sectors comprise 75% of the waste stream.

According to a statement released yesterday, the Public Works Department is scheduling the forums to assess the impacts of accelerating the implementation of the regulations from 2014 to next year. The statement says that San Francisco, San Carlos and Napa have already implemented similar laws.

Jessica Robinson, a local actor who has competed in Miss California USA pageants on a “green” platform, and who initiated a voluntary waste reduction program, “Miss Alameda Says Compost,” for Alameda businesses, told Action Alameda News, “I am so happy to hear that the City has come to a decision to move the dates closer for mandatory recycling in multi-unit homes. This is an exciting time for many who have worked hard to get the City of Alameda to be as sustainable as possible. I believe we are on our way to becoming a prime example for other parts of California to follow suit in helping our environment and taking responsibility for our planet.”

The community meetings will be held in Council Chambers at Alameda City Hall on these dates:

  • Thursday, May 26, 2011, 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
  • Tuesday, May 31, 2011, 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. [Update: Location is Main Library, 1550 Oak Street, Meeting Room A.]
