The City of Oceanside, Calif., made an update to its waste and recycling code on February 1. The new code changes, which go hand-in-hand with the city’s current waste and recycling practices, require that multifamily buildings have a specific amount of recycling bins to ensure that all residents have access to recycling bins. The code also requires small businesses to have a 96-gallon landfill cart and a 96-gallon recycling cart instead of two landfill carts and a recycling bin for an additional cost.
